I have learned that the only constant is change. Survival in the digital realm means accepting challenges; finding unique ways of applying current knowledge and not just thinking outside established models - but deconstructing and reinventing them when necessary.
My experience in all phases of graphic design, digital media and prepress production might be described as exhaustive if I didn’t enjoy my work so much. What began as an endeavor to become an established lithographer with expert level skills on traditional equipment such as process cameras and scanners soon became a passion –and with it a challenge to find more creative outlets for my skills. Recognized as a gifted artist during my undergraduate studies at William Paterson University, I sought a more direct approach to earning a living in the commercial art arena. After mastering the conventional prepress techniques of print industry, I quickly became proficient in the digital design domain as the shift toward Mac and PC-based workflows accelerated.
