When I was 12, in the midst of being influenced by video games The Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past and Earthbound, my family got our first computer. I was also becoming a huge sports fan, and spent an inordinate amount of time creating pixel art versions of the team logos and players I liked using my first design software – Microsoft Paint. It wasn’t until halfway through college, an abandoned computer science degree, and a degree in journalism did I create my first profit-generating website “just for fun”. It was then that I realized I could make this a job.
Since those days, I’ve worked as a print and packaging designer well-versed in press checks, papers, Pantone swatches and overprint ink techniques, an environmental graphic designer with hands in sculptural signage, murals, and hundreds of architectural finishes, and digital design in the worlds of apps, the web and kiosks. I embrace the T-shaped nature of Lifeblue by doing whatever I can to help, including working with a super talented team of developers and designers to make our best work possible
