CUSTOM DESIGN WORK

With over 25 years of design experience, I’ve probably come across what you’re looking to create. Having worked in-house at several large publishers in New York City, including New York Magazine, Time Inc, and PriMedia, I’ve led projects and design work for individuals and large corporations. Creating print identity graphics, t-shirt design, illustrations, printed materials, advertising and promotions, web design, broadcast television graphics, event signage design and installation, product packaging, catalogs, sales presentations, as well as involvement in the nuts & bolts of printing production, including: price quoting, paper selection, photo selection, scanning, color correction, design, layout, and press checks.

PHOTOGRAPHY / VIDEOGRAPHY / AUDIO PRODUCTION

I also have extensive experience with photography, videography, lighting, and post-production editing and graphics. I am also available to write, record, and mix musical projects.

MUSIC

I been making music since 1984. I started in a choir, with incredible opportunities to tour Europe, and perform alongside the Vienna Boys Choir, the Houston Symphony, and Jean-Michel Jarre. Sloppily self-taught on guitar, and with a bit of piano, I started recording on a TASCAM in a rented house in 1994. Since then, I've been able to enjoy writing and recording music, for fun, and for others. I have (along with some really wonderful musician friends) created jingles for ad campaigns, recorded four full length albums, received radio play, played lots of shows with me and my guitar, sold out concerts with my bandmates, and made some videos.
