I have a nut allergy so I’m going to keep these brief.
Years ago, I was at a crossroads for my life. I had just turned in my resignation from my full-time job and had no other options lined up. I was burnt out and needed something new. So, I jumped into the creative field and began creating videos, graphics, and whatever else people needed.
What started as a need to survive, soon became a lifestyle of creating.
That was May of 2008. I had created a few logos and several graphics for various churches and businesses around town. \
I had created a business.
While those designs were well received, the projects slowly came to a halt. That’s when I realized that I can’t wait for projects. I had to go search for them.
I had to hustle.
I’d love to say after months and months of hard work things finally took off, but that’s not the case at all. It was hustling years and years, with a lot of late nights and a lot of sacrifices that my business finally started to take off.
It started with a small idea that still holds true today:
Create beautiful things that I’m proud of.
I didn’t have any formal business plan or a background in business at all. For me, I found that the best way of learning is actually doing it. Going this route has allowed me to work alongside some amazing organizations like American Bible Society, Venture Expeditions, Mall of America, rethink Group, and the Michael Hyatt and Company. I’ve also been really fortunate to have some of my work featured in Charisma Magazine, Relevant Magazine, Ministry Today, and Apple INC.
I’m not a designer.
I’m a creative.
Of course, I never could have gotten to where I am now without the support of my clients who appreciate what I’ve been doing and want to tell their friends about it. I’ve relied almost exclusively on word of mouth which is such a cool thing to say!
I’ll Keep It Authentic, Yo
I know, I know that title is annoying but here me out. It’s one of my life’s goals that I can be as transparent as possible. I want to share the highs and lows without sugarcoating either side. That’s why I’ll share a lot of the behind the scenes in my projects. I always want to be accessible to the people who are just starting their dreams and to the people who’ve been going at it far longer than I have. I love connecting with people on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
