Greatest Love Songs

As soon as this title appeared on the EMI release schedule, I was all over it! Not only is it a wonderful musical project to work on BUT I'm also very good friends with Sam Nelson, Rick's son. It was a pleasure and a privilege to work on this project with Sam's involvement and the fact that he was thrilled with the results is the icing on the cake!

Release date: 01/15/08

My Business, In Logo Form!

(click image to enlarge)

Designing for yourself has to be both one of the most rewarding and frustrating tasks a designer can attempt. With that said, I created this logo and button graphic for MAN ALIVE design and I'm excited about its use on business cards & letterhead, against different color backgrounds, and more. It's crisp and clean with a few modern twists to give it a little extra kick... I hope you enjoy it too.


After nearly 15 years, I have finally moved back to my hometown of Lancaster, PA. Why, you ask? It's simple: To be near family, to be my own boss and to live a simpler lifestyle.

Over the past 15 years I've lived in NYC for 4 years, LA for 7 (including 2 stints; one for 4 years and another for 3) and 4 years in Birmingham, AL. Since leaving Lancaster in 1993, I have struck a balance of full-time work between being a Production Designer & Art Director in the design field and Project Manager, A&R & Senior Management in the music industry.

Over the past 1 1/2 years I have been working full-time for EMI/Capitol Records' Catalog division in Hollywood, CA as an in-house Production Designer creating package designs for Ricky Nelson, Al Green, The Highwaymen, Kenny Rogers, Louis Prima, Ella Fitzgerald and more.
