WHO AM I?
I am a graphic designer, web designer, web developer, sketch artist, musician, film maker and Macintosh pro. Growing up in a family of printers and musicians, I was pre destined to follow in my their footsteps. I started drawing at a very young age, and worked in my father’s printing company as a teenager. There, I learned to apply my artistic skills to the printing trade and learned everything from 4-color process and spot-color printing to graphic design and typography to client management.
HOW DID I GET HERE?
In the late 90’s, in response to shifting industry needs, I started an independent web design company called Karma Ink!®. I was then hired in 2000 by the president of LeAnn Rimes’ fan club Rendee Bullard, to redesign LeAnn’s fanzine. (Rendee is now my business partner with GOGOME.ME) I soon took over redesigning and then managing LeAnn’s official website. In my four years as webmaster, (here comes the bragging part!) I won three awards for “Top Entertainment Website” by the BBC and an award for Design Excellence from Sony Japan. I was commissioned by Carlos Santana’s management team to submit artwork for consideration. My work has also been featured in Country Weekly Magazine and on Entertainment Tonight.
I really enjoy designing and developing websites. I use WordPress and Joomla as my CMS engines, and must say I am leaning now more to WordPress because of their ease of use and updating. Take a look through the latest sites that I have designed. Click the link and check out the full website.
I have been playing music since I was big enough to hold a guitar. Below are some songs that I played guitar on, or sang on, or both.
