Growing up in the greater Cincinnati area, I enjoyed art, architectural drafting and mechanical drawing classes during my adolescence. My special interests included pencil drawings, pastels and watercolors. After high school I completed offset printing courses and entered graphic art school. As it is with many people, life happens and I started working in the construction and agricultural industries in high stress positions. After 20+ years I felt the need to destress, re-examine, and simplify my life. Having a strong interest in design, I decided to pursue website design and development to utilize my graphic arts strengths and computer skills.
What keeps me busy besides work?
Hotrod & classic cars
My business background advantage
From 1988 to 2010 I worked for small businesses and non-profits in operations and financial management positions. Having extensive experience and a multitude of business skills, I understand your challenges and the many aspects of day to day operations. I come with insight about small business needs that other web and graphic designers may not have.
