I’m a Christ-Follower who is humbled by the thought of even trying to follow the example of my Savior, knowing how often I fail, and yet who presses on.
I’m a Husband who deeply loves his wife, who knows exactly how she likes her coffee, who is willing to make 67 breakfast burritos so that the entire 3rd grade at the school where she teaches can have a hot breakfast on the morning of ISTEP testing and, believe it or not, I’m the kind who still really enjoys hanging out with her after 14 years.
I’m a Dad who really wants to know his sons, everything about them, every scrape, every ticklish spot. Seriously. For example, I can tell you that when my oldest gets a scrape on his knee or elbow, you can tickle him right under his armpits and he’ll completely forget all about it.
I’m many other things too. I'm a son and a brother, an avid collector of all things Superman, and a lover of Apple, Inc. products.
And of course, I’m a Graphic Designer. I'm the kind of designer who gets more excited than a kid on Christmas morning when I get to help a new business get started. The kind who really listens to his clients in order to understand their projects and ideas so that I can partner with them to the best of my ability. The kind who appreciates the graphic design in everything – from traffic signs and billboards to menus and television commercials. And trust me, as nice as this sounds, it can be a bit of a curse at times. But don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have it any other way.
I've always loved art. Some of my earliest memories are of drawing Pac-man on the blank pages in the back of any book I could get my hands on. You can probably still find some of masterpieces in the books in my parents house. In school I took every art class I could. In fact my senior year, I took 2 art classes, one of which I got to teach myself!
I graduated from Grace College in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design and Illustration. Since then, I've worked for corporate offices focused on a single brand and agencies covering multiple brands at one time. In the end, I discovered that working directly with my clients is the best way to help them grow.
