Making it Happen
I was quite the creative kid, growing up. My interests weren't much different from any other child. I'd play sports, read comic books, and go to movies. But I also spent much of my time daydreaming and drawing pictures—depicting my boyhood fantasies, typically. I may have not been the most talented artist but my parents recognized my passion for it and encouraged me to study art in college. Of course I had heard many tales about starving artists and had no interest in being amongst them. Instead, I chose a related field for my career path and enrolled at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale to study graphic design.
My time spent in college taught me the basics of my profession—develop a concept, layout a page, spec some type, and prepare a mechanical for press. That is to say, I knew just enough to land a job.
But nothing beats real-world experience and it's those years after college where I really learned how to make it happen. While working for numerous corporations spanning various industries, I've amassed critical design skills and real experiences that I can use to make it happen for you.
