About Me

Born & raised in the Midwest.

As a kid, I drew pictures and told stories. Safe to say, nothing’s changed. Though I’ve been creating art for as long as I can remember, I’ve only pursued design and photography for the past five years or so. The adventure began when the band I was drumming for at the time needed merchandise designed but couldn’t afford to pay a professional. Since then, I’ve taught myself everything I know about design and I continue to learn more everyday. In the past few years I have done creative work for countless local bands, churches, non-profits, schools, and start up companies. In the fall of 2016 I created The Ember Sessions, combining all of my passions in an effort to share the stories and music of local artists. I’m always looking for opportunities to improve my skill set and to expand my client-base so feel free to send me a message to see how I can help bring your ideas to life.

What Others Say


“As a new church, we wanted to be sure we had a strong digital presence and an appealing brand. With us investing a a fair amount of money into marketing, we didn’t want it to go to waste because our logo and branding was sub-par. Nik was able to develop a logo and brand that has helped us in ways we never thought possible. We love putting his designs on our website, shirts, coffee mugs, and water bottles, and each time we do, people compliment us on how much they love our logo. “

“Three years ago someone was highly recommending Nik to me, and now I get the pleasure of recommending him to others. Along with professionalism, I commend Nik on his reliability. Each time I’ve needed something done, Nik has something to me within 2-3 days, and follows through with the project in a very timely manner. I know if I need something created, Nik will come through for me!”
