Degree

Bachelor of Fine Arts (with Distinction), Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, California.

 

I have been very fortunate, since graduating from Art Center College of Design, to be continually employed in the field of graphics arts and design. I have had the pleasure of working with a great variety of clients who are too many to name in this resume. I have selected only the more prominent clients to list below. Many of these have been loyal, return clients for many years. This site features selections from my favorite jobs and clients taken from the

last 2-3 years.

 

I am also an Internationally celebrated, and collected Fine Artist. This is a great passion of mine. My art has been featured in several prominent forums, one of the most notable being The Surfers Journal Volume 13 #3.

Last, but not least, I am a contemporary music composer and am currently involved with a project called KinderCrowdControl® and have released 2 cds, "Selah" and "Songs To Saadet", 5 Singles "Superhero""Audiobon",  "Dr. K" , "Here",  and "Nexxxus" and 2 videos under this umbrella. KinderCrowdControl "Pom Raccoon" is our first. My second video is a visual CV/art presentation, designed and scored for reknown Thai National Artist Dr. Kamol Tassananchalee. It can be heard and seen here.


I bring a unique attitude, look and feel to any given project, whilst always fulfilling the particular job requirements of the individual client. My end goal is to always exceed the client's expectations. My diverse skill set allows me to apply myself to a variety of aspects/demands of each project. I have helped launch, and reinvigorate, many brands. My clients have always been thrilled with the results and many, like my direct mail clients, have been loyal for years. In the spirit of reinvention, I have dusted off my illustration skills and am re-introducing this arrow into my quiver.

I am a Los Angeles native, father, and long-time surfer.
