Hi i'm Mike!
Scroll down to see my stats...

For over 15 years, I’ve worked on a plethora of projects including
digital, print, interactive and marketing campaigns. My best asset
is the ability to always stay on schedule, bring the best designs and
be able to adapt to any medium that is given to me. I pride myself
on being able to go from concept to final production as an
all-around design professional.

I’ve been designing since 1998 and it’s been a blast.
Check out my timeline to see key events in my life that has gotten me to where I am now.

The start of my career in design.
Before the end of High School I knew I wanted to be a designer. My first design was utilized by Orange Work as their official branding.

Bradley Academy for the Visual Arts.
After completing my classes at Vo-Tech I went deeper into design, learning the trade, techniques and styles from well known designers.

The Tee Line / Jomar
My first job in design was a pre-press designer. This was perfect as I learned the nitty-gritty of printing, colors and correct file setup.

Innovative Home Creations
My first freelance position was due to my work at Jomar by designing a distributor catalog and package design. This also entailed product photography.

Mashable
I designed an infographic for a multi-platform media and entertainment company which lead to multiple infographic projects for the company.

CDW / FastCompany
Because of my many infographics, FastCompany selected me to create an Infographic for CDW’s cloud computing technology.

Holt Construction
Became the marketing assistant and graphic designer who helped rebrand the company with new designs for print, web and video.
