Born and raised in the Tulsa area, I was always fascinated by anything creative. At first, wanting to be a comic book artist and turned my eye to studying everything around me. As I entered high school I focused my creativity towards design and haven’t looked back.
After graduating I spent a few years in retail and eventually was dragged into a web startup, where I began developing flash and web-based solutions. Still working in the web field in 2000, I found 2 business partners and started Toydrum, Inc – which focused its web and software solutions on small and medium businesses. After 7 years Toydrum closed its doors, I worked short term positions and freelancing, eventually joining GoBob Pipe.
While working with Toydrum I worked mainly with new businesses, with some established ones as well. Notably working on updates for Rib Crib and TRC, with web site designs and solutions for Mayor Kathy Taylor, 105.3 Kjamz, Namco America, 4-to-Fix, and Dwelling Spaces. As a designer, I’m especially proud of the wide range of industries I’ve worked for and created successful concepts for over the years – from lawyers, a local rap station, cosmetics, video gaming, government organizations, real estate, supplement companies, local events, farming, churches, industrial, and a coffee house.
An interest early in life was helping to educate, as a result, I’ve pursued and sharpened my public speaking abilities. Winning several regional competitions in high school, I’ve gone on to help clients and groups understand the internet, design, and things at which I can speak on. I also helped in student recruitment for 2 years to help give back; I spoke to groups of middle school and intermediate classes on the values of pursuing education through vocational and college classes.
At GoBob I’ve provided a wide variety of marketing – from billboards and flyers to photography and web development. I’ve streamlined advertising and ad spend while also helping with company expansion.
When I’m away from work I spend my time with family and friends, playing League of Legends and Team Fight Tactics, and coordinating efforts for OKgamers.com – a group fostering community and comradery for gamers in Oklahoma.
