About Me

Great team player. Excellent joke teller. Designer extraordinaire.

My Story

I studied film at Loyola Marymount back in the 90’s. After working for Disney and MTV for a while, I figured out that graphic design was more my speed. It turns out that I could not fulfill my lifelong dream of writing for the sitcom Cheers. It had been off the air for 10 years by the time I got to college.

So I started creating titles for student films and learning Photoshop. Photoshop actually fit on two floppy discs. I tried making fake ID’s in my dorm room with my Mac LC and Apple LaserWriter. None of the fake ID’s worked as they were printed in black and white.

I made the meme to the right –>look–> because I thought that Mariah Carey looked like a bear in that awesome coat.
