I’ve been a Creative Director (and Entrepreneur) since 2003, an Art Director since 1996, and a Graphic Designer since 1994. I have been a curious creative eccentric since birth. I believe and practice an ideology of discovering creative expression in every aspect of my life.
I have achieved excellence with design using the modern tools such as Dreamweaver, Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, CSS, XHTML, jQuery, Drupal, Actionscript, WordPress and Basecamp.

The word enfineitz is one I created to describe my philosophy toward creativity. The etymology can be derived from my German roots and my own creative way of bastardizing the word “infinity.” My intended meaning of enfineitz is infinite creativity. It was inspired by the expressive movements of the late 19th and early 20th century, such as De Stijl and Bauhaus. I represent what I do with the enfineitz philosophy as enfineitzstil (German for enfineitz style). All of the work you view on my various portfolios are enfineitzstil, meaning that I apply this ideology to how I create the project.
The Enfineitz Manifesto is this: to create new and fresh art in any media without the stigmas of limited resources or originality. To create art in any media which is true and beautiful and bears merit from the heart, not from monetary gain. To create art in any medium which is expressively edifying, not blasphemous, profane or obscene. To free one’s mind to explore endless horizons and landscapes of expression. To believe that there is no end to original new creative expressions for any generation or individual. To live life to express oneself creatively in any way, far beyond the canvas, paper, keyboard, camera. To make one’s life a journey of creative expression. To never stop learning, to push oneself to new skill levels, achievements, accomplishments. To celebrate life, love, death and creativity. To worship the universe’s Engineer, Creator and Savior from the heart. This is enfineitzstil.
