Here is a roundup of some of the creative projects I have worked on to date (as of 2013), including music, marketing, and literary publications. I have self-published a music magazine, a chapbook of poetry, and CDs and merch for two bands, for which I was also the singer and songwriter. Check out the images and links below for more information. And keep in mind, there are more creative projects in progress!
