For those of you wanting to know little about me I will try and help you out!
I am a single father of 3, living in Loveland, CO. I am very proud of all 3! They are all AWESOME!
For as long as I can remember, I have always been a DIYer (Do-It-Yourselfer). This applies to both my personal and professional life. I thrive on challenges and learning, and never accept that something can’t be done…I am always looking for a work around!
Professionally, I am a graphic designer with over 20 years experience.
I spent my first 3 years working in an Advertising/Marketing Agency working as an Account Executive and graphic artist. I taught myself Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Quark Express (InDesign wasn’t around at that time). To give you an idea what that means in the graphic industry, I started right around when Macs were beginning to be used for layout. I remember doing paste up and using a stat camera. If you have no clue what those are, think of them as the “stone age” InDesign and Photoshop of it’s time. Except not as easy to use or as versatile. What we can do in minutes today took hours, sometimes days in achieve back then.
After that I spent the last 21 years working for a local publishing firm creating curriculum materials for teaching as well as running my own freelance business.
One of the biggest challenges I have faced is keeping on top of an ever changing industry. It’s not all about print anymore. Now it’s all about having an online presence and being seen. If you need anything created for print or online, I want to help you with that! Contact me!
