Designing takes Caffeine.

Creativity, Concentration, &

I was born in Culver City, California in September of 1996. I knew early on that I was destined for a career that involved creativity and inter-acting with people. I started my career developing, promoting, creating, and launching brand specific product marketing. I am able to teach and mentor a creative staff while developing cutting edge campaigns. I have learned to multi-task, collaborate with staff and management in a corporate setting and implement those work ethics in an agency environment. I relished in an atmosphere that allowed creative freedom and the opportunities developing award winning and successful concepts for Fortune 500 Companies across multiple industries, landscapes and medias. Going on 18 years in this industry I look forward to pushing the envelope of design and development producing campaigns to launch new start-up companies or brand existing companies to separate them from competition. Regardless the task, my imagination awaits.

s I was walking through the s w a p meet I couldn't help but notice two tattoo artists “B” and Tattoo Mike doing some of the most intricate work I've ever seen. The music was bumping in the back ground while they did their “thang”.“B,” used a mans arm as a canvas to construct a picture of an eagle. Tattoo Mike was finishing up a music note on a guy's upper wrist that turned out really nice. I was captivated by the steadiness of B's hand while his client did not fret from the pain that was being administered to him. I've heard about the pain of getting a tattoo but never experienced the sting of the needle. I told “B” and Tattoo Mike that I was in the developmental stages of creating a motorcycle magazine and would like to interview them. Tattoo Mike seemed reserved and cold while “B” was skeptical. Once I started talking to them I realized that neither of these guys knew where their drawing skills would take them, but found out after life changing experiences. Talking with “B” I found out that he was a comedian in the making. Every question was answered with jokes and sarcasm. Eventually I got
