2018 marks what will be my thirtieth year working in the field I love - commercial art!
I've been both fortunate, and privileged, to work with some of the most recognized & awarded Creatives around the globe. Who, as Art Directors, Designers & Photographers have produced & created ads that not only move markets, but also consistently serve as visual waypoints in our contemporary culture.
Since graduating long ago from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale (BA - Vis Comm) my skills have evolved and adapted right alongside the hardware & software of our industry - from the Hell Chromacom machines of the early nineties, to today's vastly more powerful desktop macs. One thing hasn't changed however - my commitment to being an integral, committed and collaborative member of the creative process, and to doing my utmost to not just meet, but exceed expectations.
My client list should serve as a benchmark for my abilities, much the same as the awards the work I've had the opportunity to be a part of, stands as a testament to the creativity & efficacy of the ads we helped create.
While over the years I've worked from many disparate markets across the US, I'm now happily back in my home state - Virginia, based out of the industry acknowledged creative hub of the Southeast - the city of Richmond.
I welcome the opportunity to collaborate, and hope that no matter the assignment, you reach out to discuss how we can work together to make images that stop the viewer, no matter the end medium.
