I've been working in the graphic design field since the early 1980s. I started out as a calligrapher, creating name-tags for events, menus for restaurants, and framed quotes that I sold. I had a little alcove in our basement where I kept my drafting table and calligraphy supplies. Once I moved to California and got my first Mac in 1986, a whole new graphic design world opened up to me. In 1988 I was hired by an all-Mac environmental engineering company and for 5 years I learned to design complex site layouts and various graphics for client reports using Adobe Illustrator 88. I then advanced to using Photoshop and another whole new design world opened up for me. I also took a several graphic design classes at Diablo Valley College. As Mac programs became more sophisticated I kept increasing my skills. I took part of my vacation time each year to attend MacWorld Expo in San Francisco so I could stay up-to-date with the latest Mac technology and software. I kept upgrading to new Macs when I could afford to do so. I quit my corporate job in 1992 and have been working as a free-lance graphic designer since then. I love designing logos and PR material for my clients. Take a peek at my portfolio links below to see some samples of my work.
