About Me

I am a designer, artist, musician, and composer living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

I create art that emphasizes the central role of the gospel along with the time-honored traditions of the church. This includes music, logos, print projects, illustrations, websites, vestments, and parament design.

After graduating Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in 2010 and receiving a Master of Divinity degree, I decided to continue my education at San Diego State University to attain a Master of Music degree with empasis on music composition. I have served as the choral director and musician at Risen Savior in Chula Vista, California, lead graphic designer for the WELS Hymnal Project, and currently serve as Communications Director at Trinity Lutheran Church in Waukesha, WI. Listed below are some of my current and former projects.


A liturgical media company that focuses on producing well-designed graphics for churches and schools.

Christian Worship

I was the lead designer and secretary of the Technology Committee of the WELS Hymnal Project (Christian Worship), a multi-year project to produce a new hymnal and accompanying resources for use in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.

Opus 54

In 2010 I produced a feature-length documentary film together with my friend Caleb Bassett on the topic of the mechanical action pipe organ in the chapel of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Mequon, WI. The title of the film is Opus 54. The project’s website is to be rebuilt.
