"Daddy, you're the coolest daddy in my life."

 

Those are the words of my oldest daughter. I would like to think that everyone has this view of me, except the daddy part, but reality is often very different from the mind of a child.

 

I was born in Anaheim, California in 1979. I created my first design with the ever reliable pencil when I was five. I have been designing ever since, though the medium has changed throughout the years. Now the keyboard, mouse, and occasional drawing pad are my tools.

 

In 1989, I moved to Georgia, where I continued to doodle, dream, and get in trouble for sketching while the teacher was talking. I attended Brookwood High School in Snellville. After graduating, I went on an exploratory quest, trying out Georgia State and Perimeter College before finally settling on UGA, where I graduated in 2001 with a degree in Journalism/Advertising.

 

I was immediately hired by a bridal magazine as an Art Director. From there I went to a small catalog company based in Stone Mountain where I worked as a graphic designer. After that it was onto Progressive Lighting where I worked as a graphic designer for four years. Now, I am currently designing for Acuity Brands Lighting. I also work as a freelance designer and have done work for various catalog, marketing, and mom and pop businesses.

 

During those precious moments of free time, when my children allow it, I like to draw, sketch, and write. I currently live in Loganville with my family. We spend the days as all families should, playing and laughing as if nothing else in all the world matters.
