If you haven’t already guessed, one of the first things you should probably know about me is that I am obsessed with fonts. And Times New Roman makes me want to gag, as it should everyone really. Of course, I suppose it’s actually fortunate that the sight of it doesn’t make everyone gag all the time. Otherwise, in this Times-infested world, no one would be able to do anything. Naturally, I do my part to help, deleting the abhorrent font file whenever I can, replacing paper signs wherever possible. After all, every little bit makes a difference, right? Yep, that’s me.

Good design has always been important me. I figure, if you’re not going to make what you’re doing look nice, why do it all? When I was in high school I often spent more time formatting and “fontifying” my homework than doing it. I mean, if I had to read and grade all those mundane looking papers, I’d probably go insane.
And my other pet peeve, bad graphics. Don’t get me started. Do you realize how many church websites and newsletters are inundated with horrible, dated gif’s and png’s pasted here and there and everywhere? Speaking of bad church websites, that’s pretty much why I started to design in the first place. How could I expect other people to be interested in our church if even I, as a member, wouldn’t want to attend based on our web presence? (And yes, for better or worse, that is how I make a lot of my decisions).
I do have some other hobbies as well. I love to read and to write, to sing, and to obsess over obsess-worthy obsessions (i.e. anything Middle Earth, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones). I enjoy history, fantasy and sci-fi, dark chocolate, generally nerdiness, a good story, well-written television, and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. So anyway, there’s a little bit about me.
