I started training Jiu-Jitsu at Gracie Barra Encinitas 2015. Soon after I started attending classes I was approached by the owner to help out with tournament marketing and design. Since I started working with Gracie Barra have been tasked to design Medals/interlocking medals for all of the Gracie Barra Tournaments we have put on. The Irvine Winter cup featuring Mitsuyo Meada was our last tournament I designed for and it did have some challenges. There were no really clear images of Master Maeda so I had to be clever with the design. I decided to go with an old fight poster look that had been wheat pasted. It was accepted with a lot of complements.

Inspired by loving parents who found it hard to find functional, practical and fashionable apparel and accessories to deck out their "little Groms." We are a brother/sister team who have grown up in a Southern CA beach town. With the average year-round temp of 70 degrees, we are always enjoying the outdoors; therefore, sun protection is constantly on our minds. The availability of hats, for kids, that was scaled down to fit properly was minimal. Using our experience and relationships launching products in other industries...6 months later, Grom Squad was born!

I was asked to develop an entire brand of CBD products. Easier said than done. I first had to find a company that could provide the Highest Quality CBD on the market and then talk them into selling it to us. After weeks of cold calls, over promises, and un-replied emails I finally found our partner. That day the product was born and I now had to create the brand. I wanted a very medical and simple feeling to our brand. We will be bringing Sana CBD to market February 2019.

I was hired by Top Chef Brian Malarkey to rebrand his GreenAcre website. Although he had a functional website it was not being used as a tool. The main objective was to incorporate all the information needed to inform customers about all that GreenAcre had to offer. Showcasing all the amazing specials and always changing menus. We developed layouts and information for all the rooms that were available for conferences. We also had to develop a way to include the 2nd location into the same website. We went through many different wireframes and 3 months after start date we launched.

I work directly with the owner to brand her company. She has a very clear direction on what she wants her brand to look and feel like which is amazing.
The goal was to bring a fresh look to products that are already selling well online. It was ironic that the name of the company happened to be my last name:)
