Unlike Peter Parker or Clark Kent, I have no real superpowers.I am a 40-something ex-military turned Harford County Suburbanite that somehow found the cure for ADHD and insomnia as a family man and graphic designer.
I love daring designs, unusual art and making people laugh. My perverse sense of humor, observational wit and illustration skills even landed me a spot in Mad Magazine, where after 12 years I've embraced my title as one of the UGOI (Usual Gang of Idiots). On the serious side, I am fascinated by the visually-saturated world and love to explore how my client's vision and message can engage, educate and entertain through all of the white noise.
So, if you're in the need of stopping a speeding train or leaping a tall building, I'm probably not your guy. But, if you want a dedicated, professional designer/illustrator to help you get your business off the ground - let's chat!
For over 5 years, I have been on my own. Free from the shackles of corporate dress codes and the fabricated, four- wall prison of a cubicle. Aside from the occasional "going commando" and better view, being independent allows me to meet with my clients one-on-one and develop a relationship built on friendship and trust.
One of the most frustrating things I learned with my times in ad agencies and corporate offices is the breakdown in communication between the client and the end designer. By working directly with my customers, there is no Ad Executive, no billing department and no endless back and forth between Creative Directors, Art Directors, Copywriters, Graphic Designers and Production Artists.
It's just me and you.
My personal goal and profession mission is to establish and nurture an open line between my clients and myself that is based on the comfort and security you feel when you call your friends and family for support and guidance.
