Since 1989 I have been working with computers, creating custom graphics,
photo manipulation and have developed hundreds of web sites. I am very
technically-oriented, from installing hardware and software to trouble-shooting
and computer repair.
I am originally from Vermont and used to be a stone-cutter, making grave stones with a hammer and chisel. You might say I have gone from the stone-age to the computer-age. I've literally spent thousands of hours learning and studying all aspects of computers, graphics and design.
"When I create graphics, seldom do I use just one program. I feel that some programs have areas that they are better in than others. I try to use the strong point of each graphics program that I have available. Whether it's creating 3 dimensional graphics or drawings or just graphical text, I want to come up with the best design and look that is possible. If you see a photo and you can't tell if it's been touched up or edited, then I've done my job correctly."
