Earning an Associates degree in Computer Graphics and Multimedia from Utah Career College started my career on the right foot. My first job was designing yellow page ads for directories published across the western United States. Some time afterwards, I returned to school to earn a Bachelors degree in Web Design and Interactive Media from the Art Institute of Salt Lake City. I also attended classes at Southern Utah University studying Illustration, as well as classes at Utah Valley University in their Digital Film program. My education has introduced me to a number of theories, methodologies and software programs that have become invaluable for progressing in my chosen career and taught me that learning is a lifelong pursuit.
My wife and I are early empty nesters and only recently relocated to the Portland, OR area. We love the abundance of trees, the closeness of the mountains and can be found camping several weekends during the summer months. When I'm not working I read a lot of books, mostly Sci-fi or fantasy and I'm working on my own book. I like to enjoy the outdoors by going on longer motorcycle rides when I can. In fact, I have ridden from Salt Lake City (where we moved from) to Portland twice now! 100 to 150 miles in a trip is not unheard of. And the scenery around here is breathtaking!
