About Me

About Me


August 2004. I am also a 2002 graduate from BGSU with a Bachelor of Science in Technology specializing in Visual Communication Technology. Like many of my students I started my education at a two-year community college, where I received an Associate of Applied Science degree majoring in Graphics from Terra
Community College.

I designed the 2010 Northwest Ohio Aids Walk logo that was held

and programs.
