While growing up in Nashville, TN, I started to realize at an early age that I enjoyed technology. Figuring out how technology worked always felt more like a puzzle than work. I had also learned that drawing and creating something from nothing gave me a great sense of pride. Although I grew up thinking one day I would have to decide between the two and choose a career path, once I got into college I realized I did not have to choose. Working with web sites I was able to get the best of both worlds. In my first year of college, I was fortunate enough to get a job for a local Apple service and sales store. I got a chance to work first hand with companies that were starting to merge design with technology, which at the time was a new concept.
After graduating with a Studio Art degree with an emphasis on technology communications, I was able to land a position in Birmingham, AL, working for a well known Photoshop plugin developing firm, AutoFX. Instantly I was thrown into a world of high-end design while keeping the interface light and friendly. I continued down this learning path while working with companies like TBS, Toyota, Krispy Kreme, AT&T and The Weather Channel. The challenge each of these projects brings to the table continues to fuel my passion for my work.
