I've been in the graphics, printing and publishing industry for a long time. I'm an expert at setting up files
for just about any printing process under the sun. I'm also a Photoshop whiz, capable at color-correction,
photo-retouching and photo-manipulation. Most of my employment has been in the publishing field. However,
I have also done plenty of logo work, brochures, illustration and vehicle wrap designs.

I'd always been into drawing and graphic design, even before I knew what it was. My grade school notebooks
were full of doodles of rock band logos and inventive monsters. I don't want to date myself, but to this day
I can still draw the Rolling Stones lips logo with my eyes closed.

So after a brief stint studying history at Muskingum College, I transferred to the University of Akron and
enrolled in the BFA of Graphic Arts program. I instantly knew I had made the right choice. I graduated
three years later and went off to Washington, DC where I landed my first job in publishing. I stayed in DC for
four years working in ad agencies, and design firms.

My reasons for moving westward were largely motivated by skiing and Denver's proximity to the Rockies.
So I was thrilled to be able to land a design and production position in the marketing department for SKI
Magazine, Skiing Magazine and Warren Miller Entertainment. I have worked there ever since, doing
design, print-production management and skiing as much as humanly possible.
