My design career began in 1987, the day after my high school graduation. Green and enthusiastic, I dove head first into the world of ad design, overseeing production for a small, local newspaper in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. Rubylith, border tape, speccing type, spatial relationship... I absorbed all I could about graphic design and the production process, but with limited resources and no “formal” training, as the years passed me by, so did technology.
It wasn’t until a most humbling interview during which I presented a portfolio filled with hand-rendered advertisements and was asked if I had ever heard of Adobe Photoshop, that a light bulb went off. "What's Photoshop?” I asked, sincere. So began my journey into the Visual Communications program at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh from which I graduated in 1999.
