I am a professional graphic designer with over two decades creative design art direction and production. I began as a Tam O’Shanter, a student of Joseph Fitzpatrick at the Carnegie, which awoke a talent that drew me to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I now work as an art director producing the marketing and communication materials for many national and local companies. I specialize in corporate identity, branding, ads, brochures, magazines, newsletters, image creation, photo retouching, print & production management as well as online media and web design.

The odd times that I am not labeling photoshop layers, you can find me growing bananas, feeding the koi, walking Moe, haunting an occasional house, or maybe even star fishing.

This website contains the universal graphic designer story... the one of endless meetings, client revisions, committee direction, location scouting and long hours in the trenches. So take a look around... and thanks for stopping by.
