When I watched my mother building the catalog for our family business as a youngster, little did I know that it would spark a creative interest that would persist throughout my life. Eventually I progressed from observer to designer and ultimately created most of the print and online media for the company. A few years and a lot of school later, I landed my first in-house position. Since then I’ve worked in a wide range of industries and developed myriad skills.

I spent about 6 years in the interactive business, cutting my teeth at a Dallas firm called Blockdot, Inc. I was privileged to design for such venerable clients as LEGO, Universal Pictures, Microsoft, and Nabisco, and was honored with several industry awards. Then I joined [x]cube LABS, an up-and-coming mobile app company. It was there that I began interfacing directly with clients and supervising production teams.

Since 2012, I have been employed as a Trial Graphics Associate and senior-most graphic designer with Barnes & Roberts, a Deep Ellum-based firm that specializes in media for litigation. My primary role is to help attorneys build compelling stories for a judge and jury, be it through animated tutorials, slide presentations, print materials or even physical models.

I am very lucky to be able to work doing something I love and there’s almost nothing I love more than creating visual masterpieces – even in my spare time. When I’m not working on an art project, I am tinkering with my 1976 Datsun Z-car or raising a flock of backyard chickens at my home in Oak Cliff.
