Art and design are in my blood going back many generations. my father was a commercial photographer with overly abundant creativity and my mother a fine artist. Both rubbed off on me but I took to the computer as it came of age. Adobe applications, computer logic and the web set me free of the drafting table and easel.
A classic art education with all disciplines from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco was a great gift. I got my BA of fine arts in 2003 and set out on my own. Between times of complete freelancing I took on part time jobs with various web and design companies to learn more. Through it all I've worked more and more with storyhat and find myself most pleased with the superior work we've done.
Today I find myself quite at ease with print and graphic design but my real love is designing for the web. Building solid web ready templates from my designs has become my place of true inner happiness. What can I say - I'm cheesy.
The rest of my time is devoted to my growing family, mastering the kitchen even more and being the biggest wine geek you'll meet. On the wine note... I also pour wine at my family's winery/tasting room on Sundays.
