About

It's not as good as in person, but it'll do.

By now you've probably come to the conclusion that I am a graphic designer.  Ever since I was a kid riding around on a skateboard, I've known that I wanted to be a graphic designer. I've always loved creating things; Building features to drag down to the street and skate, screen printing, and customizing everything I could get my hands on. I especially knew this was my path when I was the only one that took my graphic arts classes seriously in high school and appreciated the 6 color screen press we had at our disposal. 

Now in my professional career I think  I am so lucky to have stayed on my path, and still very much love what I do. One of my favorite design quotes is, "Design for people, not designers". To me this captures what design can do. Most of the time our end product is designed for people to utilize and learn from. Whether it be a way finding icon, a logo marking a favorite brand, or literature of some sort, in the end "everyday people" will be using it. That doesn't mean it shouldn't look good, it should look down right amazing, but the end user should always be in mind...even if you have to open them up a little.
