Lucky to have such talented, creative friends who do things, too. Good friend, Nate Cross, plays in Marriage, asked me to design a poster for his show coming up with Starring and Guardian Angel.

Tribeza asked f I would like to participate in their design issue and I was super excited. When I looked at the other designers featured, I have to admit, I was a bit nervous about submitting.

I treated this like a project and gave myself the assignment of introducing myself. Cover image by Dan Winters CLICK HERE TO VIEW ...
