You may have noticed a theme here: I'm a proud veteran and an experienced graphic designer.
I benefit from a work ethic unlike any that can be developed in half-day workshops or seminars—I continue to hone my leadership skills and design expertise in my profession as a Multimedia Illustrator for the Army Reserve. Most days I'm designing marketing and communications pieces as a one man army for The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company: I'm currently the first, and only, internal graphic designer for the global organization and the visual brand compliance officer. But any worthwhile endeavor begins with a long person willing to be first.
I am proficient with many Adobe Creative suite tools, with several mastery-level certifications from Adobe Authorized training centers.

My background in IT Security served as an excellent foundation designing for digital environments. I've designed and built websites, HTML email templates that don't require a CMS, and project-tracking resources in Microsoft's SharePoint.Contact me
Joining the army was one of the best things I ever did—unfortunately, it caused more than a few delays in finishing my undergraduate degree. Forunately, it gave me the opportunity to put the skills I learned to practice and cementing a foundation before moving on to the next thing. I'm a solid print designer with the chops to make clean & effective ads, reports, documents.Contact me
Digital whatsits? Digital Signage! Where cutting-edge technology intersects with traditional advertising in a tangible medium—and I've spent my entire professional career immersed in it, managing a global network of signs for Goodyear: designing, developing, & and training users around the world.Contact me
I'm the type of guy who will do whatever is necessary to get THE shot—like hanging out the side of an airship at 1,100 feet.
I ran my own freelance business as an event and portrait photographer locally and did some shoots abroad for The University of Akron's Global Village program.
