A different kind of college educationMission I started my design career at the University of Houston studying Graphic Communication. I was intersted in drawing and I learned the creative process, but I learned far more about the creative business. I used student memberships in American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), Art Directors Club of Houston (ADCH) and Houston Interactive Marketing (HIMA) to build the core of my professional network. I completed the Graphic Design program at Bradford School in Houston in 2000, and industriously practiced the creative design process in commercial design and production projects as amateur artist, teacher and entrepreneur. In 2003, I graduated from University of Houston college into the worst job market of the decade, despite that fact I started my career as a full-time Production Artist at American Color just 2 weeks after reviving my B.A. in Communications.
