I was born and raised in Colorado. Art was something I have always loved and knew it would be a big part of my life from the tender age of 9. My goal was to incorporate that passion into doing something I love and make an honest living at it. The answer for me was to become a designer. Since diving in to the world of design, I have never looked back, I eat and breathe good, well thought out design. Among my strengths, I would list my ability to see the intuitive details of design, creating intelligent solutions that exceed the expectations of my clients and an excellent work ethic.
