I’ve been a craftsman since I was a kid.

I’ve been a craftsman since I was a kid. At eight, I sketched up floor plans for my dream home, complete with fanciful features like a volcano in the living room. I took that same why-not spirit to Drury University. There, I found my true love in two dimensions: graphic design. Specializing in Visual Communication, I received a B.A. in Design Arts. I’ve spent the last fifteen years knee-deep in graphics, web, and branding. Now, I carry the title of small business owner with pride.

They say I had the early signs of a wordsmith.

They say I had the early signs of a wordsmith. I spoke early, asked questions incessantly, and wrote on everything that magic marker could mark. I did all the typical wordy activities like spelling bees, speech tournaments, and essay competitions. In college I had one goal: learn to communicate with anyone, anywhere, at any level. I found the training I craved in the public relations department, and left Arizona State University with a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication. For sixteen years now, I've been writing, project managing, and publicly relating on a professional level.
