I have been working as a designer for about 20 years and have been involved in some form of art since I was young. I realized at an early age, my talents in art, drawing, and painting, and so decided to follow a career as an artist.
In 1992, I began studies at the Art Institute of Seattle with a focus on graphic design, but my education also included advertising and illustration. I graduated from the Art Institute in 1994 from the Visual Communications program. Following graduation, I worked in print shops for several years, doing everything from bindery and production, to both traditional and digital pre-press. While doing this, I focused on improving my fine art skills and had several art exhibitions in various venues of downtown Seattle.
Later, I landed a Graphic Artist position at a 24-hour cable news station, NorthWest Cable News (Belo/NBC). And, over the years I've gained expertise in design, art, print and web production. My experience has led me through several opportunities, including a position as an in-house graphic designer for the prestigious Bellevue Club in Bellevue, WA and my current position as Sr. Graphic Designer for Bourns, Inc. in Riverside, CA.
In mid-2007, I moved with my wife and kids from beautiful, albeit cloudy, Seattle to sunny Southern California for better job opportunities and began work on a Bachelor's Degree in Web and Interactive Media from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh's Online Division, which I completed in September of 2013.
