About Paul

My experience as a business owner, graphic designer, and art director has conditioned me to
go beyond the normal boundaries of my position when necessary to “do whatever needs to be
done” to achieve the desired outcomes more quickly, more efficiently, and at lower cost.
In undertaking various large and complex projects, I have had to learn quickly, find effective
solutions to problems, and maintain a sense of humor throughout.

I have worked as both a graphic designer and production artist for the past 20+ years in both the corporate and studio environments. I am experience with the non-profit, theatrical, health, retail, architectural, engineering, educational, and construction industries.

I Taught Audio Production at Columbia College Chicago, consisting of theoretical audio engineering concepts followed by hands on experience with some of the latest professional audio recording devices to two classes consisting of twenty students each for 17 years at one of the nation’s premier visual, performing, media and communication arts college.

When I was a business owner I developed an appreciation of the importance of good customer
relationships to efficient, high-quality work. As a result, I treat everyone I deal with, both
internally and externally, as a valued client. I communicate effectively with clients to
develop a graphical concept around their ideas that meets or exceeds their expectations.
