Current employer: Vertical Partners West LLC / Venom Power
I have been seriously engaged in graphic, web, animation, packaging design and marketing since 2002. I have a passion for creating clean, modern identities, stylish & beautiful designs and websites for clients, my employer as well as for fun. I’m constantly improving and developing my skills and abilities and will not hide that I like to set goals and necessarily pursue them and I am always educating and pursuing new designs and technologies.
Before engaging into the world of design I was a professional snowboarder. I was lucky enough to be able to travel to quite a few beautiful places around the world to compete and do exhibitions. I also feel very lucky to meet so many nice people. My venture in snowboarding started in 1984 and my professional career started in 1989. In 1992 I became lucky enough to be hired by Volvo / Budweiser ski shows to travel and do exhibitions around the world. My ski show career career in lasted 8 years until I had my first child and realized I did not want to miss out on the first years of my first daughter. After retirement I struggled for a while to find my next career until I was introduced to Photoshop. I became immediately hooked and found my next venture in creative that I felt was voided when I retired from snowboarding. Plus I still haven’t broken a bone yet from graphic design :). Photoshop made me even more hungry to learn more Adobe software, html/css, 3D modelling and animation. Here I am today still rocking out designs and occasionally still snowboarding.
