For 6 years I was fortunate enough to travel the world playing pro basketball. The experience has had a huge influence on so many aspects of my life and greatly expanded my appreciation for art and design. In the 8 years since my return, I’ve done my share of freelancing while honing my design skills as I also took the opportunity to help out a good friend fighting Lou Gherig’s Disease as her caregiver for 3 of those years. I love the creative process and am driven by the urge to strike that perfect balance of great use of type, illustration and layout in a given project.
