Howdy!

I'm a successful corporate product and graphic designer who's always liked the feeling of teaching others something new. I am all about the old adage regarding teaching a man to fish versus just giving him a mackerel. My skills have brought me measured success in completing projects done for Walmart, Target, The Sharper Image, and other large retail channels. My philosophy in teaching is to not just teach the "how" -but more importantly the "why."

Because I have experience from many different aspects of bringing a product to life including: design, idealization, production, and planning - I know how to apply different design skills and tools to many different situations in order to find an optimal solution. I value efficiency and neatness in work, and I try to pass those values as well as the ways to uphold them to people I help. After all, life is too short to be spent doing lots of tedious Photoshop/Illustrator when you could be designing or finding inspiration.
