A DEEPER LOOK…
What are you known for professionally? What do you have a knack for?
I am professionally known for having clean, modern design aesthetic that is in-line with today’s large corporate and small business world. In my experience, simplistic design makes for memorable design. Companies need graphics that are impactful and build brand recognition and equity in a way that is easy for customers to understand and recall.
Any nonprofits you love, and why?
I love working with my areas Lion’s Club because I can help target where the money we earn goes. All the money they earn supports to local school districts and other organizations that struggle financially. I also try to run in several 5Ks that support a variety of non-profits per year.
I just recently started helping a new even based in McDaniel's College in Carroll County, MD called Tryvent. They are starting an annual event for middle-aged men and women that will consist of several athletic events where everyone competes for awards. I'm providing both web and print design.
What would be impossible for you to give up?
Cookies. Many of my coworkers still refer to me as the cookie monster, I just can't help myself. Trying to balance my intake of cookies and working out to stay fit is sometimes a difficult task.
How do you want to be remembered?
Someone who was passionate about his work, family and friends, and was willing to go out of his way for anyone.
What are your hobbies?
I enjoy biking, running, wood working, photography and walks with my wife and dog, Lola.
