ABOUT

ABOUT

Imaginative, creative problem solver and multidisciplinary designer and artist. I've worked as a graphic designer for over 12 years after graduating from the School of Visual Arts with a BFA in Cartooning/ Illustration. I've always found graphic design interesting, seeing many parallels with what I was taught about composing a good illustration. After a brief experience working for a print company early in my career, I decided to expand my knowledge and learn some industry standard applications such as Quark Xpress, Illustrator, Flash to name a few. Shortly after I began working at Pressman Toy as a Graphic Designer, and then moved up to Senior Graphic Designer and eventually Assistant Art Director.

 

One thing that stayed prevalent throughout this time was my love of learning new things and new ways to approach a task. It intrigues me to see how the things I learn can be applied to all the forms of art I produce. I strive to keep learning because I believe there is always something new to learn. I am surprised that my feelings on this can be summed up by a quote from an animated series I once watched, "We evolve beyond the person we were a minute before! Little by little, we advance a bit further with each turn" This quote applied to the various challenges the characters were confronting, yet is very apt in describing how art, or anything else can be.

Ever evolving, this is how I hope I'll always be.
