“Graphic design will save the world right after rock and roll does.”- David Carson
Born in Colorado and raised in Ventura California I attended Ventura High School and Ventura College. After junior-college I made my way to Arizona to continue my education at a smaller graphic design school. I graduated and went returned to Ventura to enhance my portfolio and gain more experience.
I have been passionate about graphics and design since as long as I can remember. I have had many opportunitys to learn different aspects of graphic design thru the years, from print design, to web design, to logo design and much more. I have never turned down a chance learn a new type of design or format for for creative outlet.
I was fortunate enough to work on projects in the early 90′s during the dot com boom. This is where I gained my knowledge in web design which opened a whole new world of design. The experience gained gave me the opportunity to join and help create a start-up company that created a software allowing customers to shop anywhere on the internet and check-out all at once no matter where you shopped. This project gave me insight and knowledge to design user interfaces and “easy to use” shopper check-out flows and end user documentation. The same team also created an Online Contact Manager. As simple as it seems these days, a calendar and contact organizer much like Gmail, it was cutting edge then. No one was offering this kind product anywhere in the world.
The company moved on into creating online shopping and credit card rewards programs for multiple clients. The department consisted of 2 designers and 3 programers under my supervision and direction. While working there I was still anxious to learn more design skills and gathered branding, marketing, package design, store front industrial signage, menu boards for restaurants, vinyl car wraps, video editing and DVD authoring. I am now entering into my 26th year of designing. My experiences are pretty extensive and yet I still have that same passion as I did when I started school.
