Let’s time travel. It’s 1986. I am born in the “Heart of Dixie” to loving parents who encourage me to draw everyday and hang up my work on the fridge. Fast-forward a couple of decades. I’ve honed my skills and become self-employed as a freelance artist and filmmaker. I create logos, design t-shirts, and even travel internationally to film. Fast-forward a few more years and I decide to make it official and get a degree in what I love. I graduate summa cum laude from Auburn University with a BFA in graphic design and land a job with a great advertising firm in Birmingham. In my spare time, I continue to do freelance work and create fun side projects (like iPhone apps). With over 7 years of experience, I’ve a assembled a solid portfolio and garnered a boatload of happy clients. I still draw everyday, but now my wife hangs up my work on the fridge.
When I’m not drawing, I’m drawn to my amazing wife, Heidi. We enjoy drinking coffee, listening to chill wave, and deciding on a name for our next dog. Together, we run Perfectionate, a custom shop for photo props and party things.
