As a kid I spent all my time drawing and painting, dreaming of being a comic book artist or a famous painter. As I grew older, reality started to settle in and I thought I would have to give it all up or become yet another starving artist. Then I found graphic design! [Insert Hallelujah chorus here!] At Radford University I saw the opportunity to combine my artistic skills with a technical profession that would allow me to continue doing what I love for the rest of my life.
I am passionate about design, but I realize design is not just art — it’s also a business service. I take my artistic background and apply it to the needs of my clients to come up with creative solutions for their business problems. I work to find the most effective solution for every client with the understanding that real Design (yes, that’s “Big D” design) is innovative, honest, and unobtrusive, not just beautiful.
