CURRENTLY:

I am a graphic designer with over eight years of professional experience. I recently moved to the Austin area and I am working on expanding a few areas of my expertise. These goals are highlighted below, but my main focus right now is in Freelance while I hunt for a full time job.


LONG STORY SHORT:

GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL, then off to the NAVY where I learn how to do super cool things like FIX FIGHTER JETS but then I get bored doing super cool things and decide to explore other routes that interest me. I apply my electronics knowledge from the navy and BUILD MY OWN COMPUTER where my love for gaming develops into a LOVE FOR DIGITAL ART. Out of sheer curiosity I START DRAWING while on a very long and daunting cruise. Turns out, I’m GREAT AT DRAWING so I decide to pursue this new found talent. I get out of the military with an HONORABLE DISCHARGE. Find a great college and MAJOR IN GRAPHIC DESIGN. It starts off a little rough but then something clicks… HOLY PEN TABLET BATMAN! I stop sucking and START BEING AWESOME. After a lot of hard work I end up graduating TOP OF MY CLASS.
