I was born in Greenville, Texas and raised in Rockwall and Garland, Texas. I am a 1979 graduate of North Garland H.S. I studied art at Richland College, The University of Texas at Austin, and graduated May, 1987 in the last class known as North Texas State University, now the great University of North Texas! I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Advertising Art, with a secondary concentration in fine art printmaking and a minor in German. I am employed as a graphic artist by Ben E. Keith Beverages – Dallas, one of the largest wholesale distributors of beer in the world! My daily responsibilities since 1992 have included making price signage and custom point of sale materials primarily for Anheuser-Busch brands including the famous Budweiser, King of Beers.
