Hi, I'm TJ, an explorer of life, a lover of light and a connoisseur of fine cheeses. I am in love with creative thought and am constantly amazed at the myriad of ways it shows itself in almost every industry.
I have a B.S. in Graphic Design, have worked in the advertising world as a Graphic Designer, and Art Director for almost seven years and am inspired by painters, illustrators and cinematography.
My process is to partner with each client, listen to their needs, then offer creative solutions to fulfill their desired communication. I see each project as a building block toward future jobs.
In 1998 I started my creative career working as a designer and art director as part of an in-house design team. My experience ranges from branding to cover design and advertising campaigns. Coming from the design market, I understand how to work with art directors and design agencies to achieve their desired goals. In 2005 I launched my photography business, winning over a dozen international awards to date.
Raised in the countryside of rural Pennsylvania, I dreamed of exploring the mysteries of deep space, being a ninja and building worlds inside my 6'x6' sandbox. My parents gave me a love for being alive and encouraged me to see life bigger than it appears. I moved to Greenville SC when I was 22 where I started by creative career, but find my soul lives in the mountains of Colorado and the deserts of Arizona.
When I'm not working, you can find me playing with my two sons, engaged in acrobatic yoga, and exploring the connection between body, mind and spirit. I believe we all have the ability to live an extraordinary life, it's just the awareness we generate that dictates how it manifests itself.
