A native of Canfield, Ohio, I am one of many who have navigated from the Midwest to Southwest Florida.
Searching for a more practical approach to traditional art, I began my publication career as a Bobcat, studying at the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University in Athens. I ended that tour, obtaining a bachelors degree in informational graphics/publication design, a minor in Art and a specialization in Journalism in 2007.
I am currently responsible for 1A (design, copyediting, headline writing), graphics and various other pages and projects that crop up at the Naples Daily News in Naples, Fl.
I also take on freelance work outside my full time position.
