"When I was in 1st grade I won a school poster contest with a bag of crayon shavings. It was inevitable I'd find myself in art school in Los Angeles. I was heavily into photography and mixed media then fell into design while involved in, "the music industry". In 1995 I decided to do my own thing and started JV Media Design (aka JVM). I'm currently the Creative Director here at JVM and have had the pleasure of working with a wide range of clients from epic corporations to rockstars to farmers. I love what I do. In my spare time I create art, take pictures, do Qigong, write comic books, and visit the Oregon coast. Sometimes I'm even lucky enough to get in an art show or two in."
Q: How do you rock at JVM?
I’m the Creative Director here. I'd say Creative Genius but I know how that would sound...and I don't want to be confused with Apple’s brand.
Q: Why design?
Design is just an extension of art to me.

Everywhere and everything. Friends, other artists and writers inspire me a lot too.

I like applying creativity to a project.

"The World House" by Guy Adams
Q: Fav tunes while working?
Just putting iTunes on random and letting it go.
Q: If you had 2 extra hours in the day what would you do with them?
In a perfect world I would probably write or do something artsy for myself. Or I could potentially just stare at a wall for two hours and do absolutely nothing.

My iPhone 4s in a wooden bamboo case with an octopus on it, an oragami bunny that Mario made me, and an owl paper weight.
