I started in Graphic Design during my studies at Texas A&M-Commerce in Commerce, Texas.
I graduated in 2002 with a B.S. in Printing, which is a print shop management degree. However, my minor focused on Graphic Design. I also worked in Creative Services at the university for 2 years prior to graduating.
Over the years, I have worked at Staples, Kinko's, and Gillette Printing as a Graphic Designer. I also was employed by the City of Gillette as Production Specialist, which was mainly working with videos (creation & editing). Of course, the actual titles were different. I believe I was a "Document Creator" at Kinko's. Oh, those were the days!
I have also worked freelance off and on since graduating from Texas A&M-Commerce (2002) and University of Wyoming (2005) as I haven't always worked in print shops, copy places, and office supply stores.
I was with Campbell County School District for a few years as a German Teacher (2005-2008). In 2012, completed my Master's Degree in Secondary Education at University of Phoenix Online.
I have experience in just about anything printed; from logos to signs to decals to posters to catalogs and the list doesn't stop there. I've recently started design vehicle wraps for a NEW company here in Gillette! I've even digitized a sewing pattern for a girl's dress. I would say that was the most "out there" thing I've done as a Graphic Designer, although my father's gravestone is also something interesting to mention here.
I started learning how to create websites about the time I began working in Creative Services at Texas A&M-Commerce (2001-2002).
I had a kind of hiatus from the web for a number of years due to out-of-date software and not focusing on the website design. However, over the past few years, I have made a come back with a few web design clients, including my own site.
While working at the City of Gillette, I learned a lot about television, sound, recording, and video editing. The videos on my Facebook page are 100% done by me.
If you have any video projects, I can help you with just about any aspect of them. Just give me a shout through email, messaging, or by telephone and I'd be more than happy to talk with you about your project.
