Just Me

my pixWhen life finds its way around the corner, and introduces you to new challenges, it’s best to strap on the boots and get busy. Life is about getting up, not falling down.

As a creative professional, I have enjoyed working with a wide variety of creative individuals who have inspired me, challenged me, and provided a rewarding and enriching learning experience that brings me here today. Trained as a journalist, I gave traditional reporting a try right out of college working for a county seat newspaper in Northeast Iowa. I learned two important lessons in my first volley into the profession: avoid writing about local bond issues and never write a column criticizing television evangelists. Either move will prompt a hefty load of anonymous mail and some pretty crazy phone calls.

But that was a long time ago, and the news biz ain’t what it used to be. So I guess you could say I’ve hung up my journalism cleats for anything creative that provides me the ability to contribute new ideas, beautiful design, audience participation, and a reason for someone to “pay attention”.
