WORK

Currently, I am accepting freelance work on a case-by-case basis. If you're interested in my services, please shoot me an email and let's talk about the project a little and see if we can work something out.

HELLO, MY NAME IS TOM

I am a graphic designer, bacon advocate and scrabble enthusiast from Los Angeles, California. I have six years of combined design experience in graphic design and occasionally moonlight as a frontend web designer. My early venture into design began with web design (we're talking Angelfire and Geocites kinds of things here, gross right?) Through the years I developed my aesthetic through experiencing most of what I could find in online design communities. Being a bit of a nerd, I had a bit of a knack for most technology which made picking up software fairly easy. Eventually I decided to study graphic design in college to develop my creative process more and be more deliberate with my work.

I tend to enjoy simple-yet-functional things, mid-20th century furniture & architecture, Wes Anderson films, reciting obscure movie quotes and breakfast foods to name a few things. I try as much as I can to "say what I mean, mean what I say."

(Unfortunately, I do not actually have a creepy twin with a stringy beard)
