The Journey

I have worked as a Graphic Designer and Photographer for over 30 years. I was fortunate to start with a small firm in Rochester that was the first computer graphics outfit in western New York.


Working in a research laboratory that was on the leading edge of graphic arts technology gave me the opportunity to work with the world’s first professional digital cameras, beta test new inkjet technologies and medias and observe the development of some of the finest digital graphic arts presses on the market today.


My MFA in Visual Communications enhanced my knowledge of traditional graphic design while introducing me to the newest areas of design and technology. Motion design, web and user interface design and
3D design were introduced as new tools to an already extensive portfolio.
