I graduated from Huntingdon College with a B.A. in Digital Art and carry 15 years of program experience including 6+ combined years of professional experience in a company/in-studio setting in the Advertisement Media, Steel Manufacturing, and Higher Education industries.
My expertise involves print design, apparel, environmental, and multiple forms of digital design involving web, mobile, and social media. I hope to one day acquire a senior role and be involved in many different industries by creating visual solutions and achieving beneficial results for different brands and companies.
I'm a former high school state basketball champion, so I enjoy all things basketball-related (Go TARHEELS!). I'm married to my most amazing wife, my better half, and my best friend Danje' and we have a 1-year-old son. Everything I do…I do for them and I strive to be the best husband and father that I can be for them! I've taken up digital illustration recently as one of my hobbies (check out my dribbble!). In addition, I love listening to smooth jazz, gospel, SynthWave, and Asian-influenced "Lo-Fi" music. I'm also an avid fan of everything Honda and Acura!
