After graduating high school with an elective concentration in art, I went on to college to study Architecture and Photography. Growing up, one of my favorite places to go was the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas. This set in early as an inspiration of what I wanted to do when I grew up. I moved forward with architecture as a major and also studied photography as electives. While in architecture school, we worked with architecture based graphic design projects. This would be the beginning of the end of formal Architectural studies. I was hooked. Graphic Design had become my creative outlet. After studying both Architecture and Photography, and then on to finish out my studies with a major in Graphic Design, I set my career in motion.
Being both a Photographer and a Graphic Designer and having a deep background in Architecture has molded my career into something of a “one stop” creative. I look at the big picture on every project whether it’s a design or a photo project. I design to work with illustration and photography, and I photograph to work with design and illustration. I also compose my photos to stand on their own. All parts of the puzzle must work together. Just as in Architecture, every column and beam must work together to carry the weight of its load. However, it must also be unique, visually pleasing and inviting to the audience. It MUST too, sell. Behind every creative project is the ultimate goal, to persuade and to sell.
Since starting my career in design, I have been fortunate to work in some of the best marketing environments. Working with business-to-business, business-to-consumer, real estate, small companies and large, being receptive to my client is the first priority. Whether I am working to photograph your project or design a project to sell your product or service, it will be done with you and your customers in mind.
