I am currently the resident DJ, Graphic Designer, & Customer Service Representative at Minuteman Press.
I have a degree in Social Sciences from the University at Buffalo and a degree in Graphic Design from Villa Maria College.
I am new to the print industry but, I have been free-lancing since 2009 in design/painting for small, local agencies in Buffalo, New York that have clients including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Moleskine, and Garden of Life, among others.
I believe local businesses are important to our communities and try to support them by incorporating this into my every day life.
My first stop in the morning is almost always to a local café to pick up my caffeine fix for the day, to designing business cards for a start up landscaping company at work, to supporting local musicians and artists in my free time.
I am also passionate about drawing, painting, and my main man Teddy.
Teddy Brady is Minuteman’s in house pup. He loves wading in water, doing tricks for anything edible, and loves saying hi to everyone who stops into the shop.
