A variety of professional titles that I've worn in my life
through the different tasks asked of me, but I'm sure what you really want to know is who is the person behind the skillset and will he fit in with your current creative team. 

So, here is a quick look inside, or a stones throw across the 
water'ssurface, of what influences me and catches my attention... First,
I'm An ARTIST. I think everyone is an artist. Everyone paints on 
the canvas of life with each decision they make. 

It begins with my Faith. My faith in God, the Creator, Jesus Christ.
My perspective is shaped  through His Word.

I've been in a place of rebuilding. I've been blessed to take time
and truly breathe. Learning a new trade. I've rebuilt prescious
relationships and returned to a place I hadn't seen in years-
healthy and free to go wherever God calls me to go. I'm eager
to give back and push forward.

With no distractions, here is what catches my attention...

Geek In Me: Logos. I love designing logos. Taking a name or 
concept and simplifying it into a simple iconic visual is the best! I appreciate logo designs and could 
spend hours looking at various types; Favorite songs: Deep Water by Landon McNamara, Closer To 
The Sun by Slightly Stoopid, Bubble Toes by Jack Johnson, Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd [I love music.
I can listen to it with the best of them. Depends on the mood. Really tough to nail down just one- or
even just one genre]; Favorite movie(s): The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and Surf's Up; Outside of the office:
Hiking, Kayaking, Stand-Up Paddle Boarding, hanging out with my kids, museums; Sports: USA Wrestling (Freestyle & Greco), College football- Arizona State [Fork 'em  Devils!]; Teams: Denver Broncos, Arizona Coyotes,  Arizona Diamondbacks, New Zealand All-Blacks;​ Last book I read: Letters To The Church by Francis Chan; Little Known Oddity: In the Fourth grade, I memorized all the Division 1 Colleges and universities by their mascots. I would spend hours sketching the mascots standing on medal podiums.

I never want to become stagnate. I want to take from experiences and push forward creatively. I value a strong work ethic that comes prepared and meets deadlines.  I love working with a team to come up with new approaches to creatively visualize messages. I welcome feedback and input, at the same time, can stand for ideas and explain why something was done a particular way.
Take a look at the following pages to get an idea of the variety of projects I've been blessed to be a part of.  Thank you for taking the time to go through my portfolio!
