What I Do

Working with a variety of software and platforms I assist my clients with the ideation and design of logos, websites and other related pieces to help achieve their goals. I have experience working with budgets from a few hundred dollars to tens of thousands of dollars. Over my nearly 20 year career I have worked with companies of various sizes including single person operations and those that employ thousands with locations around the globe.

Education

I am a self education designer. I have spent and still spend countless hours both working in the various tools I utilize in my craft such as Adobe CC Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere, After Effects and more) and online learning from other designers.

Hobbies

My main hobbies, which I don't truly know if I can still rate as hobbies, are working to build an audience on YouTube, when possible, along with recording my weekly podcast - The Vector Path.
