I've run my own business and worked on small teams within larger organizations.
Along the way I've learned the value of a good team and also how to complete self directed projects.
I graduated from Texas State University with a degree in Mass Communication.
My focus of study was print journalism and editing.
I served six years in the United States Marine Corps Reserve, including one tour in Iraq in 2004-2005.
I’m experienced in the Adobe Suite of software. I’ve worked professionally as a graphic designer and am continually creating and learning new things.
Examples of my past work:
I relish clear and purposeful writing. My degree is in mass communication and print journalism and I strive to utilize those skills when writing or editing copy.
Fun fact: I proof-read and edited all but three of my wife’s papers while she was in grad school, often distilling information down to its basis and helping to keep her within the mandated page limit!

Whether I’m creating an entire website or just supplying graphics or other assets, it is essential for me to understand web frameworks and what is needed to help them run smoothly.
Websites I built or collaborated on:
Having worked as a professional photographer I understand the process from initial shoot to final edit.
This skill is super valuable to me and has been instrumental in many projects on which I’ve worked.
I've worked in the following areas of photography:
-Headshots & Portraits
As a collaborator and co-producer of the social media masterclass Social Game Strong Academy I have gained a firm understanding of how to use social platforms.
This course was created to codify and communicate all the best practices we’ve learned about using social media effectively within our business.
I eagerly research and learn new skills as I need them to complete the projects I’m working on. My ability to learn new things on-demand is my most important skill.
-Learned new web frameworks (Foundation and Bootstrap) for projects I was working on
-Researched and created online form solution for taking graphic design orders while working at City of Waco
