Early Beginnings
In the fall of 1997, I exited higher education armed with a freshly minted BFA in Fine Arts from Columbia College in Chicago. My dream was simply to illustrate and draw my way thru life. Well, life had other plans for me.
At the time there was a huge demand in designers, even those with little to no experience. The market was booming and I learned everything html and Photoshop on the job at an incredible startup by the name of AIS headquarted in downtown Chicago.
I loved designing, then building out my designs for our clients -
To name a few, Crains New York, Standford University, Hyatt Hotels, Bodybuilding.com, Chicago Fire Soccer .. it was a heady time.
Utilizing my skills, I've designed and built countless websites for a range of clients - from conception to deployment - utilizing Wordpress, CSS, PHP, e-commerce, MySQL databases, social media, graphic design and video. And taking great joy composing content management and navigation solutions always with the same attention to detail and geeky love of code as ever.
My work mantra - "Why just work and live for a happy retirement? Why not work and live for a happy life?"
While I consider myself an artist in every sense of the word, my long history in web and graphic design shaped me to be the creator that I am today. 
I feel it is important to showcase my work as a designer, as I use these skills with everything I create today.
