Inspired by a series of Volkswagen "Drivers Wanted" car commercials, I started learning about design in 2001. I attended Hennepin Technical College for their Ad Design program, and it was there that I learned the basics of graphic design, from drawing and composition to Illustrator and Photoshop, the mainstays of Designer World. After an overseas deployment with the Army National Guard, I decided to speed up my education process, and ended up graduating from the College of St. Scholastica shortly after landing my first design job at Digital River.
Digital River and my subsequent stint as a web designer for ADC Telecommunications really taught me what the world of professional design was all about. I learned more in that first year than I would have learned in five years at school. I also made some great friends, as well as colleagues that would impact my life later on down the road.
In this three year period I cranked out designs for around 300 websites for lawfirms throughout the United States, Canada, and the UK. I learned how to push myself as a designer, and how to take an idea and make it into a living, breathing, digital organism. I also learned a lot about the law.
Seeking to learn about the burgeoining technological Wild West that was (and in many ways, still is) mobile design, I expanded my focus from exclusively web design to mobile apps, mobile web, and responsive design. I learned about design patterns and read studies on human-computer interaction and gobbled the information up as if a Pringles truck had just burst open outside my door. I continue to learn new things about mobile every day, as the industry is in a constant state of fluctuation and adaptation. New devices, new interactions, and new design libraries are coming out on a seemingly daily basis, and I couldn't be more excited for where the future will take us.
Sometimes I wear different hats. Sometimes I wear them all at the same time.
