Other Projects:

Design for Good Breakfast Series:
Currently I am helping AIGA Chicago with a new breakfast series called Design for Good. It’s a casual monthly get together over coffee to connect designers who are interested in doing good for one another, introduce other designers interested in doing good to more opportunities, and to highlight the needs of social initiatives.

AIGA Chicago Mentorship:
In 2016 I served as mentor to a group of awesome people interested in getting into a design career. We were selected to create a group project in 10 weeks. We decided to create a podcast about the design process called Process. https://itun.es/i6dd8yQ 

EPIC: Engaging Philanthrapy; Inspiring Creatives:
I have volunteered to both participate and to lead creative teams that were paired with wonderful non-profits to help them with their design needs. In 2010, I led the team that rebranded Literacy Works. You can see their new brand in their 2011 Annual Report.

Other Stuff:

The Dumpsters Hockey Club:
I helped create a hockey club for people who have always wanted to play hockey, but did not know where or how to start. We started out as a group of guys playing at the Y and now have a team that plays weekly. Why the name Dumpsters? Well, that came from the fact that we were terrible hockey players that can only score only garbage goals. It’s not true of course, but we also felt it was a great way to disarm new players and have them feel more comfortable joining our team. Buy some merch and support our team!

The Distance Podcast:
