17 years professional graphic design and photography
My first love was photography, but the year 2000 brought a passion for graphic design when I was hired mid-interview as a Graphic Tech for The Pueblo Chieftain. My only experience was POS and flyers I'd created as a marketing assistant. I learned programs and honed design skills on the job at The Chieftain and never looked back.
I have 18 years proven professional experience in graphic design. I graduated AAS - Visual Communications - May 2014, summa cum laude. I have as much professional experience as having earned a bachelor's degree but still, aspire to its completion.
Color, line, and balance; visual hierarchy, rhythm, and unity; typography, fonts, kerning and leading all fill me with indescribable joy. I'm still in love with photography, but now equally in love with graphic design and its Golden Mean.
