The Ancient Future honors the past while moving forward, embracing the tension between history and relevance. 





I am an art director, graphic designer, and photographer driven by empathy. I work through a process that has roots in cultural and visual anthropology—an attempt at understand how humanity documents and communicates itself to the world. 

This has allowed me to develop and push brands at all scales in different industries, ranging from non-profits to Apple. I have helped with marketing strategies and art direction for various menswear brands. I also have a passion for food, getting hands-on experience in the kitchen, serving and hosting, all while helping articulate the narratives of chefs and their restaurants.

I enjoy meaningful relationships with people from different worldviews, journeys, and professions. Let me spot you a latte!
