Summary

Edit
I've been in the graphic arts game for over 20 years now. I began in a garage silk screen company (Crazy Eights) in 1990 with a roommate located in Santa Barbara. The duties there included: design, separations, screening, sales & distribution. Eventually my talents carried me to bigger pastures. I always had to start over again (production art-at that time, we were still separating with a horizontal camera & film trays). Through diligence and hard work, I worked my way up to "blackliner/inker" for a multi-million dollar corporation (Fortune Fashions). When things became stale (no more challenge), I became bored & found an opening at Porn Star Clothing in my hometown. Within 3 years, I was promoted to Art Director & I relished it. Designing, pricing, sampling, contacting freelance artists, creating catalogs/linesheets and holding meetings for the future of the brand was where I was comfortable. It didn't last long, as we fell to the ultimate crash of the economy. I have always held the Art Director title since that time, working for NC17, Neal Feay & Green Room.
I have the ability & experience to produce anything you ask of me on time, on budget & without stress. I know the business & all its ins and outs. Give me a chance and you'll look like a genius...well, smart anyway.
