Pencil sketch of Nick drawn by Eleanor Aldrich


I’ve been exploring graphic design in one form or another for as long as I can remember. My formal education in design began in 2004 as soon as I discovered that there was a college major that combined photography, drawing, writing, and creating letterforms on cold-press illustration board. That was also the year I bought my first Apple computer.

Today, I work full-time for a large, mission-focused, public organization and occasionally contribute pixels, code, and CMS know-how for small projects, independent artists and other worthy causes. I’m married to Eleanor, who makes paintings and drew the pencil sketch on this page. We live in Knoxville with Zelda, our dog.

About this Site

This is my personal website, portfolio, and blog. Like most websites, this one is perpetually under development. You can track its progress at this GitHub repo. I built this with Jekyll and Github Pages for fast loading and frequent iteration. For those interested in digging deeper, I created a page with more background info on some of the tech and tools I’m currently using.
