Description: I was born in Pennsylvania (USA), and have spent most of my life there before college. While I was a child my interests were always aligned with computers but I grew up in a house with an artist for a mother. Its wasn't long before those two things grew together and led me into the wonderful world of 'Digital Art'. While searching for a career that would allow me to use creativity on a computer I stumbled across 'Computer Animation'. Immediatley after I graduated high school I left for Flordia (USA). The school I attended in Flordia was 'Full Sail', which was said to be one of the top schools in the nation for computer animation. While I would not trade what I learned there and the expierences I had there for the world... (I strongly believe that is has helped shape my creative perspective) I slowly began to realize that I was enjoying making the textures and things in Photoshop rather then the animation itself. After I made this observation I began to persue things in another field. This led me back home to York PA, where I found a great school (Bradley Academy) with outstanding teachers for a field in 'Digital Art / Graphic Design'. I graduated there as one of the top in my class. Immediately after graduation I interned at a Studio in Harrisburg PA, where I made many commercials and print documents for very little pay. But my work caught the eye of a designer that work for a national corporation located in York. He asked me to come in and interview, little did I know that I had become his replacement. After about a year, my boss (marketing director) had left, and I was offered the spot while still continuing to design. That leaves me where I am today as a Marketing Director / Designer for a national corporation.
