Specs Howard has a very high job placement rate for graduates.  I assist those graduating students in prepping for interviews and preparing their portfolios for success in the interview process.  My biggest achievement in that process is getting students to understand how they can be great assets to a business, not just great designers.  In addition, I advise on the curriculum and technologies that future students will be using to best prepare them for the job market.

On a personal note,

I currently reside in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan with my beautiful wife and two kids who are the inspiration for me every day.

I love to draw and play golf. You can often find me holding a Bic pen which I prefer as the best tool for business, drawing, writing, and sand sculpting.
