 My love for graphic design started nearly thirty years ago when I fell into graphic design purely by chance and proximity rather than intent, but it was love at first sight and there was no turning back.  In 1987 I landed a job as an engineering technician that would literally steer me head on into the world of graphic design.

My passion for and knowledge of design has steadily evolved since that day, taking on a life of it's own - but I wanted to know more. I took early retirement from my in-house job that started it all and returned to college for a degree in graphic design. In 2016 I completed my associate degree in graphic design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division, and I'm currently attending for my Bachelor's in graphic design which I will complete this fall .

Design isn't just a career, its a lifeforce and to define it in a traditional sense would be too limiting. To me it's somewhere between a quiet, intimate dinner and an international rave party. Its a complex, harmonic visual language that unites the cerebral and the creative, translates the intangible into the tangible to evoke a powerful, emotional connections with viewers.

Cheers
