I go by my middle name, Shane. I live in Alvin, Texas with my wife, Carla and our four kids. I enjoy playing board and card games and I have even created some games of my own. Family time is important to me and I love spending time with the kids. I also enjoy being creative in any way I can.


Growing up, I moved from place to place; however, by the age of 15, I called Alvin my home. I graduated Class of 1995. Shortly after graduation I moved to Tempe, AZ to attend Collins College. After graduation, I returned to Alvin to pursue my career in the print industry.


I enjoy learning new skills, being creative, reading comic books, watching movies and TV shows with the family and attending live performances. I also enjoy taking photos, which you can see some examples here.


My favorite color is blue. I love cheese (especially sharp cheddar). My favorite movie is Army of Darkness and my favorite TV show is The Walking Dead.





I have been in the design industry since high school. Upon graduation I immediately furthered my education at Collins College in Tempe, AZ. I've worked in the print, web and garment printing industries. I know every step of printing a project; from concept to design to finished product. I have worked side by side with marketing directors on various business projects. I enjoy collaborating on projects, and I'm very aware of the importance of deadlines.


I have nearly two decades of design experience, mostly using Adobe Creative Suite products, including Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Acrobat Pro and Muse on both the Mac and PC.


I have the knowledge to take a project from a basic idea and see it all the way to preflight for printing. I am familiar with process and spot color output. I know all the technical aspects, including processing press ready PDFs, collecting fonts and sending proofs via email.


Aside from my full-time job, I have worked from home on various freelance projects. I have worked part-time after regular work hours and on weekends with small businesses, charities, local and national musicians to create designs for logos, t-shirts, posters, and promotional materials to supplement my income. The designs are original and often allow me more freedom in design and creativity.


In both areas, I have worked for companies such as UTMB, Del Papa, Moody Gardens and Clear Lake Regional Hospital.


I have plenty of on the job and real-time experience, and I have learned many tricks, techniques and shortcuts which allow me to shorten production time. If ever I face a challenge, I am great at troubleshooting and doing research on my own.


I am currently attending Alvin Community College, then transferring to University of Houston Clear Lake to get a Bachelor's Degree in Communication.
