In high school my favorite classes were photography, art class & architecture. The planning & creating was exciting to me.
Then during the early 1980’s I attended the School of Visual Arts (NYC) – to study marketing, advertising, illustration & graphics. MTV was just getting started. Andy Warhol had exhibits at the school & I attended Keith Haring’s first gallery opening. The exposure of the arts during this time was fascinating!
During the early 1990’s I did PC tech support with AOL (America Online). During that time I also worked along with local internet providers setting up BBS’s. (with a 1200baud modem!) This led me to writing the BBS FAQ. A copy of it can still be found on thebbs.org.
Having this background has given me the ability & passion to work with clients in various projects over the years. I’m able to bring strong planning, strategy & design skills to your project – keeping up with the trending markets.
I invite you to explore my portfolio and services. Challenge me with your next project.
