Role: Graphic Artist
Tell us about yourself!
I’ve been working in the field of Graphic Design for about 24 years. In my spare time I draw cartoon characters and I write. I am currently working on a series of books. I am a huge movie fan and could hold my own with anyone when it comes to movie trivia. I’m also a huge fan of Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead.
What is your role at AAC?
I serve as a Graphic Designer for All American Clothing and occasionally get suckered into modeling as well. My primary job as a designer is the creation of the Email Newsletters we send out plus all direct mail marketing pieces including Post Cards and our yearly catalog. I also design the majority of the Graphic Tees that we release throughout the year.
What is your favorite AAC product? Why?
I have several favorites. First-I love the Maverick Blue Jeans. They have a great fit and they just look really good when you’re wearing them. Also-I really like the 5051 Fine Jersey Tees. YOU CANNOT GO WRONG with these tees whether you are getting them plain or with graphics. They are super soft and the fit is incredible. I also really like our long sleeve thermals and our flag cap.
What are some of the things that would make it on your “Bucket List”?
My bucket list is sometimes a bit ambitious. The biggest thing waiting to be checked off is the completion of the trio of fantasy novels that I’ve been working on for over a decade. I also have an illustrated children’s book that’s been in the back of my mind for a while that I would like to see finally come to fruition. I would also love to create a line of cartoon characters that would become popular and which I could market and sell on t-shirts , toys, books, etc.
Where would you like to travel and why?
When I was younger, my cousin and I took a lot of road trips and had the goal of visiting all 50 states. I’m proud to say that I have 48 of them under my belt-the contiguous 48. I have not made it to Hawaii or Alaska-so I would eventually love to see them both. Also-though there is much “unrest” in that part of the world-I would love to see Egypt. I’ve always been fascinated by ancient Egyptian culture and art. I would also love to see the Louvre and Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, Big Ben and The Tower of London in Britain and New Zealand (Because of The Lord of The Rings) and especially Australia.
