17 years ago I started a graphic design business my junior year of college. I worked for many years in the creative industry in Atlanta, Georgia. Freelance and contract work from Cox Communications, Turner Broadcasting and Capricorn Records were a few clients. Along with my design work I was commissioned by several individuals to create paintings, sculptures and/or signs for their businesses. My work lead me to having four art representatives selling my works across the Country, teaching college at a private art institute and owning and operating a custom T Shirt and Sign business. As well, I am an accomplished investor in real estate and currently hold a Florida Real Estate Broker License.

The Portfolio Center – Atlanta, GA
Professor of Fine Art and Design
The Portfolio Center is one of the most dedicated design school’s in our country. Each student upon graduation has completed enough solid work for a portfolio to obtain a job in their desired market and is required to hold an internship in their field. My classes were based on the non-traditional methods and materials used to generate artwork and designs. The President of the college was at a gallery opening where he was introduced to my work and approced me for a job at his college to teach his students how to think in the creation process. I taught here for three semesters then moved to work in New York, came back to Atlanta and taught an additional semester here before moving to Florida.
