My true resume exists in and on the city of Richmond and beyond. Nearly EVERY building in the museum district has a plaque that I screen printed. 80% of the buildings downtown have my work in them. From city hall, the court buildings (all of them), the police station, to the James Center and thousands of unmentioned clients. My favorite jobs I have done were for Carnegie Hall, The VMFA, and the Altria Theater. I take pride in knowing thousands of people see my work every day.
