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 13 years of experience working as a designer from coast to coast, I've had my hand in just about industry. After putting in my time working for others with the likes of ASICS, New Era Cap, Under Armour, Converse, Top Flite Golf, Volcom, Kink BMX, Labatt, New Castle Brown Ale, Reyn Spooner, Kodak, Ford and Breyer's Ice Cream—I set out on my own.

Since 2017, 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.
