I am a 29-year-old Creative Director from Pennsylvania that currently resides in Carlsbad, California. In 2014, I received my Bachelors in Science for Advertising and was named Graduate of the Quarter from The Art Institute of California – San Diego. In 2013, my son Davey Danger Jones was born and has lived up to the name he was given ever since. During my time in college I interned at two local agencies, both of which turned into paid part-time intern positions that I was the first to ever be offered at either location. I also found myself doing freelance design work for a few companies to help keep me extra busy.

Shortly after I graduated I started my professional career with Surftech as their Graphic Designer. I was part of a team tasked with refreshing the brand and bringing it back to the forefront of the Surf and SUP industry. Over my time spent with Surftech we created an entire new SUP line that had boards featured on Paddle Board websites and magazines, created booths for Outdoor Retailer and Surf Expo, designed and printed yearly catalogs for Surf and SUP with accompanying sales collateral (Brochures, Sales Sheets, Tech Guides.), hopped on the “MAGA” trend with a Make America Surf Again hat, brought the community of North County together with monthly Burgers, Boards and Brews events and more. After I moved to North County to be closer to Surftech, I joined a hockey league and eventually met the owner of the next business in my professional journey.

In 2016, I joined Wholesale Sports Inc., the parent company to hockey brands TronX, Alkali and Firstar, hockey retailers HockeyTron and JerseyTron, and wholesaler HockeyWest. Here I was tasked with any and all graphic design work, managing all social media accounts, quality control on all incoming new products, photographing and photo editing all new products, designing catalogs and any other print materials, apparel and any other promotional material design, designing and updating websites and more. I’ve kept up with my freelancing as well and have clients that include JoMo, a joint health and inflammation management supplement, Stevens Yacht Group, a full-service yacht brokerage out of Newport Beach, and Surfdog Records, a record label out of Encinitas with artists like Brian Setzer, Sublime and Eric Clapton. In my free time, I’m either with my son, playing ice hockey in Carlsbad or trying out new local bars and restaurants.
