About me

Graphic Designer

For the past 16 years I've worked in Design, from large government agencies to small private firms. I always strive to further develop my design skills, innovation, art and ideas. I retired from the U.S. Coast Guard in 2004, but my journey in art and design began decades before. As a young artist, I sold my work and exhibited in shows. From there I was drawn into graphic and web design. I graduated with a BFA and MA in Design at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. This private design college in Denver is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
