About me

I’m an illustrator, designer, and creative generalist in Greater Boston. My diverse skills and interests revolve around a love of solving problems and cracking puzzles, be they visual, behavioral, technological, linguistic, or strategic.

Since graduating from MICA with a BFA in Illustration, I've worked as a multidisciplinary designer and visual artist in the Boston technology community. Through my work at CloudKid and Fresh Tilled Soil, my clients have included PBS, Scholastic, Rethink Robotics, Massport (Boston Logan International Airport), Intel, and Titleist. I was the co-host of The Dirt for three years, producing 150+ episodes and interviewing some of the industry’s most influential figures. I mentored two awesome designers through Fresh Tilled Soil's apprenticeship program.

From 2009–2015, I managed To Boldly Fold, a bookbindery and paper goods studio led by my wife, Melissa Chao. Before closing up shop in 2015, we sold thousands of our handmade products online, at craft shows, and through dozens of amazing retailers across the United States, Canada, and Japan.

I am a co-organizer of Refresh Boston, a free monthly meetup for the design, development, and startup community.
