I have a very familiar origin story.
Mild mannered man looking for a passion. I began drawing late in High School. I always loved art and photography, but never thought there was any way to support myself or a family in that field. I ended up getting two degrees in Engineering and began working for a large cable service provider right out of school.
The money was good, but there was still something missing.
I've always yearned to develop my creative eye. In every engineering class I took I found someone who would push my artistic boundaries. Even after earning my degrees I practiced drawing and shot photos whenever I could. The problem is... I never took that step into the design field. It seemed I needed something.
That's where Paolo Coelho came in. My very supportive wife introduced me to his book, The Alchemist. There I found the inspiration I needed. The main character, Santiago, overcomes obstacle after obstacle in the search for his passion. His Personal Legend.
Whether in web design, advertisement or graphic design I strive to understand my craft and push myself toward my own passion.
My own Personal Legend.
