As the lead designer for the Marketing Department's Creative Team, I have the opportunity to incorporate and expand on a broad spectrum of graphic design and production skills. Working closely with our team, I strive to integrate and maintain the company brand throughout all marketing channels. I'm regularly engaged in the concepting and execution of compelling print, interactive and other forms of advertising and collateral.

My Career Experience:
I've been working as a graphic designer and illustrator for more than 20 years. The experience I gained during this time includes: graphic design, production and digital pre-press for print, web and multi-media; and illustration for a wide range of output. I joined the Allen Tate Marketing department in January 2004 and am still learning new things every day.

Graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1986 with a degree in Visual Communications - graphic design and illustration.

I enjoy hiking and paddling my kayak on a nearby lake. I live in Pineville, N.C. with my wife Kathleen Burke, also a graphic designer, painter and an instructor of drawing, painting and art history at Winthrop University. We found our home in Pineville, in 1999, with a great deal of assistance from an Allen Tate Realtor.
