Hello. My name is Erik. I am currently walking the line between creative director, art director, brand designer, strategy and doodler based in Dallas Fort Worth.
Born and raised in California, I spent most of my time between the rocky shores of Monterey and the mountains of Lake Tahoe. I hated surfing because sharks. I failed out of The University California Santa Barbara, worked odd jobs that were terrible, then made my way to Texas on an ultimatem. Shortly after, I took my love of doodling and drawing on furniture and attended the Art Institute of Dallas. I studied design, art, and communication. It was tough, I was never great at school environments because I challenged a lot of presumptions. I spent the following years after graduation at a small ad agency in Florida, HAVAS in Dallas, retail corporations, non-profits, marketing agencies, and branding studios. After everything I’ve learned and experienced, I can honestly say, I love what I do.
