I have an Associates Degree in Graphic Design and a Bachelors Degree in Visual Communications. Since 1998 I've been a Website Designer/Developer living in Northwest Ohio. Over my thirteen year career I've won design awards from the Communicator Awards, AXIEM Awards as well as others. On the side, I also do artwork (mostly portraits and caricatures). The past couple years I've been fairly busy with commissioned projects. I'm also a huge Star Wars fan, and in 2008 I joined the Ohio Star Wars Collectors Club (OSWCC). Since then, I've done 2 t-shirt designs and other artwork for the club including a badge design for their 2012 Summer Social. In general the Star Wars community has been very supportive of my art and I've had artwork published in recent issues of the Star Wars Insider (official magazine), websites like TheForce.net as well as a piece of art in the book "Save the Lars Homestead".
