“Creativity is not the finding of a thing, but the making something out of it after it is found.”

James Russell Lowell

1. Why did you pick this profession?
I don’t feel as though I chose my profession, rather I think graphic design chose me. I’ve always had a natural inclination towards the arts, drawing came easy to me and I love solving puzzles and brain teasers. In a nutshell that’s what graphic design is, taking a mess of photos, graphics and text and making them fit together just right so they are aesthetically pleasing. So graphic design drew me in and is a perfect fit for me.

2. What’s your favorite hobby and why?
I like swimming laps whenever I can, and just being in and around water. I also love solving puzzles, brain teasers and playing chess. I own over 30 different kinds of Rubik’s cubes.

3. What famous person (dead or alive) would you like to meet and what would you say?
Hmmm, I’d like to meet Abe Lincoln and I’d tell him not to go to any theaters.

4. What was your first concert and do you still listen to their music?
My first concert was the Beastie Boys at the Sky Dome in Toronto in about 1992-93ish. I’d prefer not to divulge any further details about that event in this forum. And I do still listen occasionally and probably still know all the words to all their songs.

5. What actor/actress would play you in a movie and why?
I’ve been told I look like Luke Wilson or maybe Edward Norton, but Bill Murray has my sense of humor.

6. How would you describe your primary role at JFG as it relates to customers?
As a professional designer I feel my role is to give my customers solutions to their problems. Every job is different and every set of criteria provides its own set of obstacles and challenges to overcome, so my role at JFG is a problem solver, creating order out of chaos.
