GRAPHIC ARTS AND PAGE LAYOUT • Layers and the Target
THE CARTOONIST • Getting Laughs or Not
PHOTO EDITING • CAN YOU TELL?
Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio
my very early interest was in art and drawing. Creating super-8 movies was also an infatuation, coming into play later. Beginnings in journalism started at ROY C. START HIGH SCHOOL on their newspaper 'the Galaxy'. The first of many employments as a graphic artist began with a screen printing organization. I also worked for a sign company, and a billboard designing business. I would say the most curious form of employment was designing decorative figurines. My fine art and illustration prompted me to become part of the gallery and art show circuit. The UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO years brought me back to the basics of art, and a seat on the university newspaper as a writer and cartoonist. I majored in computer imaging, and minored in photography where I received a letter of comendation. Entering the broad world of the multimedia recording studio, I discovered that my music and movie-making past converted into high end video production, complex audio projects, and the realm of supervisory management. The written word came around to me again and has expanded into creative novel writing. To culminate all that I have done, my hope is that in some way, I have brought joy to people. I look forward to the future, making new friends, and sharing a touch of talent with the world.
