Beginning with creating punk rock graphics at night, while working a day job producing financial investment charts...
I fell into this career by accident, between attending two different art schools. Done with working in restaurant kitchens, which, while fun, was not going to be a career for me... I saw a job listing for a “chartist”. Sure, why not? I contacted HR, was called in for an interview, I filled out some forms, and was then hired based on being both an art college dropout and the recent manager of baking at a bistro in Harvard Square. They saw potential in someone with both visual and managerial background. I learned on the job. I was very lucky. And so were they.
I have been working in a freelance capacity ever since, with a breadth of experience and successful projects completed across web, print, and screen media. I am constantly upgrading and adding to my skill set. The range of my clientele includes corporate in-house art departments, non-profit organizations, audio-visual companies, advertising agencies, small businesses, design studios, individual artists, musicians, universities, and municipalities, plus independent projects and assisting other designers. There is much flexibility here.
I have a dual career in both fine and graphic arts. The two balance and inform each other. They each make me better at both.
