I attended CCAD in Columbus Ohio on a full scholarship. Shortly before graduation, American Greetings hired me to begin work as a full time professional illustrator in Cleveland. Once there, I was promoted two times in two years, becoming one of the youngest Senior Planners (equivalent to Art Director) in the company.
From there, I accepted a job in New York City as Creative Director of a small agency specializing in the design of the iconic signs of Times Square. It was thrilling to be able to look out my office window and see my work on such a grand scale. By the end of my second year with the company, my staff – and our client list – had tripled.
After creating countless campaigns and pitches for high profile clients, I struck out on my own and, with my Art Director, created a new design partnership. Within the first year we held a full roster of clients. By the end of the fourth year we had relocated to Central Park South. Our workload continued to grow and evolve at a breakneck pace for more than a decade.
Along with generating my own work, I have been fortunate enough to be represented by The July Group for the better part of my professional career. They have done an outstanding job of bringing exciting projects and clients to my door that I would never have encountered otherwise.
After 15 years of living in the canyons of NYC, my wife and I decided to move to Vermont where we welcomed the arrival of our newborn son. We now live on ten wooded acres nestled in the foothills of the Green Mountains, where the air is rich and the porcupines outnumber the cars.
