Bryan Wexler

Im 21 years old and first visited the Colorful State of Colorado 6 years ago, when my cousin moved for work. I fell in love with the state immediately! The scenery, the friendly people and atmosphere everywhere I went, all the outdoor activities available, the amazing live music scene, all this and more told me that I knew one day I wanted to live out here and work and support myself. So here I am looking for work out in Colorado, hoping that it will give me the push I need to make the journey out there for good and start my life there! I have worked in the past; in the food industry, retail, catering, graphic design, production printing, handyman work and most recently with electronics and customer service at The Apple Store. I would also like to thank everyone in advance for taking the time to read this bio about me and I hope to see you out there one day soon! -Bryan

Chris Douglass

I've been in the graphics, printing and publishing industry for a long time. I'm an expert at setting up files for just about any printing process under the sun. I'm also a Photoshop whiz, capable at color-correction, photo-retouching and photo-manipulation. Most of my employment has been in the publishing field. However, I have also done plenty of logo work, brochures, illustration and vehicle wrap designs. I'd always been into drawing and graphic design, even before I knew what it was. My grade school notebooks were full of doodles of rock band logos and inventive monsters. I don't want to date myself, but to this day I can still draw the Rolling Stones lips logo with my eyes closed. So after a brief stint studying history at Muskingum College, I transferred to the University of Akron and enrolled in the BFA of Graphic Arts program. I instantly knew I had made the right choice. I graduated three years later and went off to Washington, DC where I landed my first job in publishing. I stayed in DC for four years working in ad agencies, and design firms. My reasons for moving westward were largely motivated by skiing and Denver's proximity to the Rockies. So I was thrilled to be able to land a design and production position in the marketing department for SKI Magazine, Skiing Magazine and Warren Miller Entertainment. I have worked there ever since, doing design, print-production management and skiing as much as humanly possible.

Elizabeth Sunshine

Back in the day (a Tuesday) I was introduced to the art of typography and identity design. My world has not been the same since. In pursuit of my grid-induced dream, I headed to Colorado State University for my BFA in graphic design and have an insatiable urge to learn new things. My passion for having a final project being something I can feel, touch, and embrace has led me to love the world of communication design from concept through production. My in-depth knowledge of Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign makes me an efficient designer and has lead me to be one of the top billers at my most recent agency. While I am driven enough to work on a project alone; I appreciate working with a team to create an integrated solution. My experience in social media uses Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and Twitter in both corporate and social settings to create and engage communities. In my relentless search for learning more I am teaching myself Flash, Dreamweaver, HTML and CSS. Feel free to contact me for more information: shirjoycreative@gmail.com or 303-717-8868

Michael James

When you are forced to face a grim legal consequence which may involve jail term, probation or fines, you can't afford to go about handling your legal condition without the services of a criminal defense lawyer. You need to get the services of a lawyer who has the knowledge, experience and the reputation to handle your case with the prosecutors, judges and courts. Criminal law attorney sometime get a not-so-flattering portrayal because people assume that they defend guilty people. However, if you are a defendant in a criminal proceeding, you need the assistance of a qualified criminal defense lawyer, regardless of your guilt or innocence. As the protectors and advocates of the accused, defense lawyers play a pivotal role in the United States justice system to see that everyone charged with a criminal act has an opportunity to defend themselves.
