After graduation, I spent 10 years honing my craft as a professional graphic designer. Advertising agency work taught me how to build client relationships and the importance of understanding core advertising principles and how they relate to good design. While working a short stint with David Wallace of the Publications Department at MSU, I not only gained a close friend but also a mentor who helped sharpen my typography skills and taught me that pride of authorship never outshines the client's needs. I then worked for seven years as a production graphic artist for a large directory publisher where I learned the important balance of quality design and meeting a deadline. Throw in graduate study and adjunct teaching at North Dakota State University and Minnesota State Community and Technical College in Moorhead, and it was a decade of great design experience.

The next 15 years saw a relocation out of state and the beginning of my freelance design career as Dorsey Design Services. Today, I continue to provide print-based services to clients, and have expanded my portfolio to include website design and providing contract services for a Moorhead-based website developer, all from my home studio. A return to the FM area in 2013 has proven positive as work has continued to grow and my skills continue to improve.

It was the summer of 1986. The previous three years had been a whirlwind of ups, downs, triumphs, failures, rewards and many challenges. My life was now back on track and I was ready to move on to the next chapter... college. I parked the flashy sports coupe, got a haircut and enrolled at Moorhead State University as a freshman mass communications major.

I was always a creative kid. I grew up enjoying music and found the art of creating a central part of me. Whether it was drawing pictures, painting, writing, playing the drums, learning electric guitar or singing, I loved creating things. When it came time to decide a life's path, an area of study, I knew it had to be mass communications.

I spent three years learning advertising, public relations, mass media and creative writing. I enjoyed all of it. Then I enrolled in Desktop Publishing, a senior elective course, and it changed my life. Professor Mark Strand was passionate about graphic design and recognized my potential. He introduced me to this new digital technology that was an amazing tool for typesetting, page layout and illustration: the Macintosh SE desktop computer with a nine-inch, monochromatic screen, floppy drive, 1MB of RAM…. and a mouse. It was a pivotal moment. I soon found out I could operate that mouse well with my limited-dexterity. My creative world door opened and I happily rolled through.

Many changes since that hot summer in the mid-1980s. Good health, great friends and an amazing family. Gone is the red car and hockey hair, but what's not gone is my never-ending desire to create.

MY STOR‍‍‍Y.

My creative journey begins with a mullet and a Chevy Camaro.
