Throughout a career in creative services as a freelance graphic artist, art director and eventually a
creative director/owner of a boutique design firm, my own design sensibilities were regularly tested and
questioned. Seemingly on a daily basis.
The deadlines and design pressure of working for national
brands was a given and I gladly signed on for it. Although perhaps with eyes wide shut.
I always relished the opportunities to elevate projects just through toying with them, usually during after hours. Not to diminish my own design value with the word, "toying" — it's' simply that I was always having fun, despite
whatever seriousness was demanded.
Although I still take on the occasional design project, the fun is heightened as I continue a long time passion with photography and a
newer one in painting.
