I have been involved in graphic design since 2000. I started off in high school designing logos for friends and small businesses in my area. Soon after graduating High School, I started CS Grafix. What started off as a simple name for my graphic design work soon blossomed into a successful freelance graphic design, marketing and photography business. After completing College, an introduction to the corporate world in 2006 with Raya Designs propelled my skills and experience even further. From there I worked for Inductors Inc. as their Sr. Graphic Designer and Photographer. During my 3 years at Inductors I learned a lot about B2B marketing and advertising, but soon decided B2C was my preferred craft. In May of 2011 I joined Ironclad Performance Wear as their Sr. Designer and Photographer and soon fulfilled an Art Director role. I worked closely under their VP of Marketing, Shawn Norfolk. He was a mentor to me and introduced me to the world of branding and taught me the true meaning of marketing and the battle for consumer's minds. After a little over 3 years at Ironclad, the company decided to move to Texas. Although they made me a tempting relocation offer, I declined and pursued a new opportunity in California. This pursuit lead me to EVS Sports where they brought me on as their new Creative Director.
