As our newest member to our digital and creative teams, Erik joins us as a Senior Designer and brings with him almost three decades of experience.

A Reno-native, he spent time sharpening his skills throughout California before making his way back home to the beautiful Truckee Meadows. His impressive resume includes a job as chief graphic designer for a large California-based newspaper group and web designer for Telocity, Inc. in Cupertino—a national broadband services provider, which was eventually acquired by DirecTV.
Before joining our team, he worked as a graphic and web designer for The National Judicial College overseeing brand management and visual design. He also served as the president for Peavine Design, Inc. where he managed design for web, print, publication, user interface as well as identity systems, branding and naming.
