Originally from central New Mexico, raised and cultured by the arts of the Southwest, where I pursued the life of a graphic designer. Along the way trained by unknown Pros in the graphic industry. When digital imaging came into play, my photography skills from school paid off learning to use all of the changing technology.
So, photography and graphics have let me provide product for so many people across the United States. I have all the mentors and my instructors over the years to thank. Its been about can do attitudes and the positive responses from my clients. The gift to help others visions and ideas come to life is so addicting and humbling. I am very fortunate to have learned so much the old fashion way first.
Things that inspire me to create: Children, History, Music, Water, Sculpture, and collaborating with other people on projects. Long drives to project sites. Studying other film makers like Film4 Productions, Big Think, The Frugal Film Maker, Peter McKinnon, Casey Neistat, Sean Cannell, Tom Antos, and Film Riot. Photographers that I have been studying and following for some time now, John McRae, Ansel Adams, J.P. Morgan and Jared Polin, Felipe Rico, Sue Bryce, Peter Hurley, Gideon Shalwick, and Chase Jarvis. Graphic artists and designers that initiated my continuous drive to keep art in my life, my children, Johannes Gutenberg, Gail Ranshaw, Sherry Hern, Alan Aldridge, Susan Gomez, Ty Pennington, Milton Glaser, and strangers who love my work.
