Born and raised in Chicago. Blackhawks fan for life. Love a good Vienna beef hot dog and a tall glass of Mt. Dew.
I strive to keep a good balance of business and fun in my life. I love being a designer and creating things, but also skateboarding and having NERF wars with my wife and three boys.
I look at each project as a chance to create something new or breathe new life into an existing design. Boundaries are meant to be crossed and sometimes those crossings bring about a world of innovation and change.
I love design. I've always been attracted to advertisements (guess those Saturday morning commercials worked). But it doesn't stop there. I frequent blogs on architecture, interior design, and packaging just to name a few. I'm always on the look out for inspiration in books, yes i still frequent book stores, on the web, and in the world surrounding me.
Like so many I have always been interested in photography, and I found that desire growing the longer I kept designing. Stock photoraphy is great, but I could not always find the picture I envisioned for the design. After personally obtaining camera equipment, learning real life photography lessons from an experienced photographer, researching tips and teniqes online - I set off to grow through experience.
In the past 3 years I have developed my hobby of photography into another professional avenue. Whether it's a session for kids, capturing newltweds special moments, or commercial photoraphy, I enjoy the chance to get to know my clients and expand my portfolio.
