    Hi Everybody!!!
    (the usage of Comic Sans was completely warranted.)

    My name is Joe, I'm 26 years old, living in Maryland where my fiance and I are raising our 4 month old daughter, and I'm addicted to good design. I've been working as a professional graphic and web designer (I like to call myself an All-Purpose Geek, because I do just about all things computer) for about 6/7 years now. I currently work as a freelance designer, though I'm really trying to transform my business model away from freelance and more towards contracts, I am also part owner of a small clothing company based here in the DC area.

    I'm mostly self-taught, though I spent some time at the Art Institute of Atlanta a lot of my training just comes from trial and error and finding the info on my own. I am, however, thinking about going back to school and getting my degree. I'd also like to get a better foundation and really sharpen my technique which I feel is tough to get solely from a book.

    I look forward to some constructive conversations with you all in the near future that result in me learning a lot from what seems to be a passionate and talented group of people ... hopefully I can provide the same for some of you.

    Either way, long story just a little longer: I look forward to contributing to the board.

                Welcome!

                Pouncing Kittie, Hidden Badger sounds fun...or porno.
                It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

                            That's how I know I joined a good design forum ... everyone has ADD and can't stay on one subject for more than 5 minutes.
