I am currently the Director of Operations for Corporate Dining Concepts. I attended University of Michigan (B.S in Biology and Chemistry) with the intention of going to medical school. I put myself through school working in the food service industry and up until now have made a career of it. I am mostly a self-taught artist, originally working with traditional medias like watercolor and oil paint. I started working with Photoshop in 1998 when I took a class just for fun. That led to two more years of school studying digital design and a life time of Photoshop and Illustrator. Before I knew it I was spending every spare moment of my time learning everything from advanced photoshop editing and compositing to character modeling, animation, and website desing. From 2000-2002 I did a lot of free lance webdesign mostly utilizing photoshop and illustratior to desing the layout and componets and tying it all together with Flash. Eventually I learned dream weaver and now I am on the prelease team for adobe muse.

I am a quick learner and have been exposed to almost every design appliaction out there. I always start with Photoshop, but am comfortable with most all of the Adobe applications. Since most of my projects are currently independent, I have had to learn every aspect of the workflow for every project I have done.

Though my true job is in Operations, I do a tremendous amount of digital design for my company. This has been a great learning opportunity as we have a very diverse set of clients and I have got to do some very exciting work for some big name companies.

My goal is to continue to refine my skill set and rebuild my portfolio to better represent my current capibilities. In doing this I hope to get an opportunity to be hired as designer whether it be for print, film. the web. I cannot claim to know everything there is to know as I learn something new almost everyda. With that said, I do know that when given the opportunity to join a team of artists and start the next chapter in my life, I am confident I will excell quickly and became a valuable asset to the group.

I learned Photoshop before I learned Photography. In the 15 years I have spent learning, the biggest take away has been that wether using a camera, a paint brush, or a computer, they are all just tools. The more flexible I become with differnt medias, the more value I can add to every project I have the opportunit… Read More
