I have been in the game for a long time. Art and design have always been my passion since I was a young lad. I started out my journey as a designer at an Anheuser-Busch distributor. For 11 years I had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented graphic artists in the business. It was a great experience and an amazing way to polish my skills.
I decided to go back to school at Clarke University in Dubuque, Iowa to learn and unlearn all the habits I created over that long period of time. It was one of the hardest, longest, most stressful, “why the hell am I a designer” experiences I ever had, and I would not change a thing. My teacher was a hard ass that pushed the limits of my patience and abilities. I would be lying to you if I said I did not want to choke him out from time to time. Thankfully I did not and he gave me the skills and the confidence I needed to be where I am at today.
