about me

I am a designer, art director and owner of YDG. I have a life-long passion for creativity, design and problem-solving.

I obtained my BFA in Graphic Design from BGSU way back in the '80's.  I spent a few years gaining experience in Fort Myers, Florida before I returned to Defiance and opened the YDG studio downtown.  For twenty years I managed a growing business, serving as Art Director to several designers on my staff and juggling all the responsibilities of a small business employer. Today, you'll find me working at a much more pleasant pace from my home studio, where I indulge myself with projects that I have passion for.

My existing clientele keep me quite busy, yet occasionally there is time to start something new.
Feel free to contact me if you have a project you would like to discuss.
