  • My love for design started as a 13-year old in a journalism class with a bootleg copy of Photoshop. Using all of my savings to max out my computer at 64mb of RAM, I spent my free time trying to recreate album covers and scenes from sci-fi movies. Post high-school, my first job included designing children’s books for a startup, becoming paper-rich and losing it all when the dotCom bubble burst.

    As Worship Arts & Media Pastor at for a local church in Vero Beach, FL, I was responsible for conveying the vision of the church in all of our print, web, presentation and video elements. This also included production design (stage, lighting, audio) and management of all technical systems ranging from audio consoles to office computers. Additionally, I led two bands, managed a team of over 50 volunteers, wrote copy, fixed anything that was broken and served in whatever other capacities I was needed.

    Currently, I teach Digital Design at Sebastian River High School. In addition to my role as an instructor, I help school organizations with branding and marketing. During the 2018-2019 school year, I speared-headed the school’s 25th Anniversary campaign which included recruiting local business sponsors in order to pay for school events and promotional items. For the past three years, I have been the school yearbook advisor and this year I am the sponsor for the new photography club.

    I married April, my beautiful wife and best friend, in November 2012. We are foodies who laugh all the time and go to Disney World every chance we get.
