2008 – Present Art Director
2004 – 2008 Senior Graphic Artist – Assistant to Art Director
2001 – 2004 Graphic Production Artist
I graduated Pennsylvania College of Art & Design in 1998 and was going thru the stepping stones of various Graphic Artist jobs till i got the opportunity to start off as a entry level Graphic Production Artist at Young Advertising Inc. Since then i have been with the company for 11+ years and rose to the role of Art Director.
As i started out with the company it was stuck in the old era of print production with tracing paper and mock ups before putting them into page layout programs, computers running coaxle cables for networking and dial up internet. So I slowly phased out the tracing paper and got the company to design page layout directly into the layout programs to save time and produce work faster. I also approached the owner Tom Young with upgrading the comptuters, network and internet (cable) with a very affordable price plan to keep the company up to date with technology. Since then i have managed and kept the computers up to date without braking the bank on the cost of technology while being the main Graphic Artist.
