April 2006 to Present
Freelance Graphic Design
I resigned my position at Sendsations to focus more energy on my wife’s business— a center for children
with learning and behavioral challenges. This change involved some design and advertising, however most
of my time has been in accounting and managerial support. During this period I still maintained a regular
workflow from Rocky Mountain Sunscreen in Denver— a client I have had for nearly ten years. Now that the
center (Success Pointe) is well established, I have more time to devote to graphic design and am seeking
new clients in the Salt Lake City area.
