In the roaring twenties, Detroit fueled prohibition and an entrepreneurial spirit that didn’t follow the rules. A century later, we started a small distillery to make alcohol the old fashion way.
Arcadian Distillery creates small batch artisanal gin using the finest local ingredients sourced directly from farms near our distillery and tasting room located in Detroit’s famed Eastern Market. The result is a drink of distinction made for the revolutionaries rewriting the history of a great American city.

SUCKER PUNCH COFFEE COMPANY
As someone who grew up collecting comics, I wanted to create a project that embodied the artwork and comic book vibe. Sucker Punch Coffee Co. was born out of my love for comic and cold brew. I tried to create vivd graphics and use font choices that any comic lover would get right away.
No Kid Hungry Campaign
The No Kid Hungry campaign works to shine a national spotlight on the crisis of child hunger in America, creating a powerful movement of individuals committed to bold action. They build partnerships that enlist influential individuals in the cause and advocate policy changes needed to achieve their goals. I created a poster that uses eye-catching photograph to grab the viewer’s attention. I used bright orange colors paired with bold graphics and imagery to attract the target audience.
Big taste, small beginnings. Renoso Salsa was born out of a passion for making food and salsas at cookouts with friends and family in my hometown of San Diego, CA. One of the dishes I enjoyed preparing most was roasted jalapeños. I would fire roast them on the grill, add some lime juice and a dash of salt, and serve them up for people to enjoy. And they did! After much encouragement from friends and family I thought, why not sell them?
I began experimenting with different spices until I perfected the recipe for our first born in the product line: Fire Roasted Jalapeños, marinated in a blend of soy sauce, lime juice, and spices. Here at Renoso, flavor is foremost. I believe in quality food toppings that are both authentic and distinctive.

At BeeMade Honey, the focus goes beyond honey production. We’re on a mission to safeguard and sustain honeybees, for the livelihood of beekind and humankind alike. In this project I chose a vibrant label with die-cut letters to showcase the wonderful golden color of BeeMade Honey and an oblong shaped bottle to give the product a high-end feel. Honey bees, which are a critical link in U.S. agriculture, have been under serious pressure from a mysterious problem called Colony Collapse.
Our efforts focus on four pillars:
Bee health initiatives include bee and environmental research as well as sustainable farming practices.
Habitat preservation helps ensure that bees have the environment they need not just to survive – but to thrive in harmony.
Beekeeper recruitment helps build a solid base of next-generation bee advocates and honey producers.
Consumer education boosts awareness of the value of pollination and the plight of the honeybee.

I am a photographer whose work embodies a sense of wonder, adventure, and free-spirited exploration. As a young man, I was drawn to photography as a means of capturing the world around me and finding beauty in the people and places I saw on my travels. Having directed and photographed many friends, families, and even models I realized my knack for making even the most timid subject feel right at home in front of the lens and what really brought my photos to life. I now utilize my love of authentic moments and personable demeanor to shoot impactful photos for various brands.
