A Brief History
When I first started college I went to Business school, but soon found that it was not a fulfilling pursuit. So, I picked up my things, sold my truck, and left to study art in London. Where I received a BFA in visual communications.
After College, I went to China and worked at a boutique graphic design firm which got my feet wet in designing brands and print collateral for clients like Westin Hotels. I went on my first press check there. Watching the giant offset printer work and people meticulously putting together the print pieces I designed. It was so exciting I ended up staying at the press check till 3 am and I have not stopped loving design since.
