Designer, Art Director, & Creative Thinker.

Hello, I’m Neal.
My experience as a designer ranges from working in the architectural industry designing signage and wayfinding systems, to working on branding projects at design studios, and working as an in-house designer, art director, and manager. I have worked full-time with large global brands, freelanced for small fast-paced agencies, and helped build and grow start-ups. I’m currently working full-time at Vistra helping roll out their International Expansion division in the US.

I’m available for freelance opportunities.
