University of Akron | Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design

Whether it’s through a clever logo, unique business cards, a compelling brand identity or a brochure design, I enjoy finding creative solutions to our clients’ visual problems. I take great pride in managing projects from concept through completion and enjoy the project organizational aspect as much as the design. My goal is to combine my knowledge and experience in these areas to deliver great work and detailed project management to our clients and vendors. I have been working for 18 years as a graphic designer and have been with the PPA team for 16 years.

In my spare time you can find me hiking with my dog, biking the city streets or running along the Olentangy Trail.


I have been a vegetarian for 28 years, yet can’t cook rice.


Andrew naturally began his career as a scoutmaster for the Boy Scouts. One summer, Andrew led a group of scouts on a camping trip along the Kananaskis River in the Canadian Rockies. One day while fishing, the scouts encountered an aggressive, 700 lb. grizzly bear. Andrew jumped into action and wrestled the bear with his bare hands. It only took 2 minutes, but Andrew worked his way onto the bear’s back and locked him into a chokehold. The bear submitted to Andrew’s grasp and the scouts fashioned a cart out of logs and hitched it to the bear. Andrew rode atop the bear, pulling the cart with the scouts to safety. When asked by news reporters about the ordeal, Andrew was quoted saying, “beat that, Chuck Norris.” Chuck Norris accepted the challenge and now has three grizzly bears as house pets – Uppercut, Roundhouse and Buttons. Living in shame for calling out Chuck Norris, Andrew turned to the world of graphic arts as a safe haven.
