The term stronghold is defined as “a place where a particular cause or belief is strongly defended or upheld”—this inspired the name of my studio and continues to inspire my approach to design.

Stronghold is a design and branding studio in Buffalo, NY.

With over 12 years of experience as a designer and art director working from coast to coast, I've had in just about every industry. After putting in my time working for others with the likes of ASICS, New Era Cap, Under Armour, Converse, Volcom, Kink BMX, Labatt, New Castle Brown Ale, Islamorada Beer Company, Kodak, Ford and Breyer's—I set out on my own. 

Since 2015, I have been doing just that. I work directly with clients that include breweries and distilleries, restaurants and bars, startups and a variety of other consumer related businesses. I also assist other agencies and studios on various projects.
