I am a Graphic Designer because I love to communicate visually. I’ve always been creative and artistic and enjoyed sketching and drawing, but I also enjoyed working with computers. Graphic design combines art skill with current technology – which in my opinion is the best of both worlds. The difference between traditional art and graphic design is the intent; my intent as a Graphic Designer is to communicate something specific in a visual and creative manner. Art can communicate, but art is usually the sole expression of the artist.

The graphic design that I do is focused on the needs of the client and the audience, therefore, practically any emotion or message can be delivered effectively. I have found graphic design to be limitless, both in its approach and execution, as it continues to cross boundaries and question our own perception of its definition. My goal is to continue to improve my design skills and to never let my left brain surpass my right-brain! Please take a look around, and if you like what you see, drop me a line. I’d be really happy to hear from you.

I've had the pleasure of working with Rex for the past 2-1/2 years. He and I have worked on several high-profile projects together, and working with him is always a pleasure. His UI designs are always tight, compact, and attractive. He is a good team player and a quick learner. Pair him up with a competent developer and sit back and watch what they can accomplish!
