Who We Are


I grew up in the Los Angeles area and was surrounded with music and art from an early age.

My dad introduced me to guitar and I began writing songs around age fourteen. By the end of High School I had also found a passion for graphic design. I specifically loved where these two worlds of music and art collided.

Fast forward: After High School, I got an Associates Degree in graphic design, then worked at a couple of small indie labels as a designer, toured with a band called Kutless (Tooth & Nail Records) for about eight years, moved from Sothern California to Nashville, wrote songs for Capitol CMG Publishing, and have NOW landed and put down roots here in Portland, OR along with my wife and 2 sons.

Equal Seven exists thanks to the wonderful relationships we continue to build with amazing people all over the world and because of the hard work of our designers and the creative community that surrounds us.

I've been so blessed to enjoy a life full of unconventional "jobs" and I'm grateful every day for the places I've seen and people I've met over the years.
