My Personal Story

I’m Andrew, but you can call me Andy T: a graphic designer, web developer, and photography enthusiast. I have been working in-house as well as in an agency setting since graduating from Columbus College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Advertising and Graphic design in May of 2014. I have a true passion for photography, film, web design and development, which speaks volumes with the clients I have worked for. I also enjoy the growth and enrichment of learning, which makes me able to adapt to new ways quickly. My passion and tenacity for creating work my clients are thrilled and proud of are what drives me forward.

My first DSLR camera, a Nikon D3200, was what got me started in digital photography. I’ve had a passion for photography since I was young. I love going out and exploring, taking photographs of landscapes and my travels. I took film in high school, where I learned storytelling through videography. Though I enjoy photography as a hobby, I have been able to implement it into my profession, working with eCommerce websites and working on product photography to share with the world. You can view some of my personal work on my Instagram here.
