Bio

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in graphic design/marketing from the University of Memphis. My richly diverse creative career now spans three decades and includes creative direction, digital art, drawing, graphic design, illustration, painting, print and web design.

My work have garnered me much praise and awards including University of Memphis Art Director’s Scholarship/Award, Prism, Cummunigraphics, The Communicator Crystal, and VOXS Awards.

My experience in the freelance, agency and corporate environments gives me the extra indebted insight my clients have come to expect. Where there’s a creative problem, you’ll find me helping bring brands/concepts to life with compelling and innovative solutions, with budgets big or small.

Multi-talented as both a creative director and designer/illustrator, I addresses work with a strategic and practicality approach. Obsessed with concept and metaphor, I spends long hours with my sketchbook hunting for the perfect solution to even the trickiest visual problems. My work is bold and graphic, juxtaposing meticulously clean line work with random, spontaneous texture.

During the moments when I'm not mentoring, thinking about, or creating art, I avidly lives a very active life style. While I'm is not a pro, I dabbles in running, mountain biking, weightlifting, racquetball, bowling and billards. After long hours of working, I enjoy ending the day with friends around great food, jazz music and a nice glass of wine.
