I am a creator and a lifelong learner. I take an idea and give it visual wings. I am currently the Chief of Graphic Design for Being Libertarian LLC, Content Creator for Amazon’s Merch by Amazon program, and working on a children’s book series called Fin and Charlotte.
My background: I was raised in my family’s business Holub Garden Center and Greenhouses Inc. in Oskaloosa, Iowa. I learned hard work, integrity, and management skills from an early age.
My passion for helping others and providing counsel led me to getting a Bachelor’s Degree with a double major in Pastoral Ministries and Bible at Vennard College. While in school I was active in admissions work, camp counseling, and served in leadership roles such as Senior Class President. I photographed sports events, student activities, and provided work for the yearbook committee.
Upon graduating a good friend in Arkansas thought he would set me up with the most beautiful woman in the world at an IHOP of all places. His plan worked so I transplanted to Fayetteville, Arkansas and became a school photographer. I realized quickly that my interpersonal skills, sense of humor, and artistic eye made my clients feel relaxed and it reflected in the quality of the pictures.
My wife and I became Family Counselors together, an intensive position where you live in a residential home with at-risk youth. We loved working with the teenagers and their families and met some of the most incredible people along the way. Our experience allowed us to teach new residential homes and to build programming from the ground up.
At Ruth Harbor, a maternity home for young women facing unplanned pregnancies, I was able to flex my creative muscles by photographing events, updating the website, administrating the social media pages, and shoot video for the annual fundraisers. The videos can be found here. I shot and edited them, provided the lighting and backdrop, and even recorded the music used to score them. I am passionate about video as an effective medium to convey a story as you can use so many captivating elements.
I became the Chief of Graphic Design for Being Libertarian LLC during the presidential election race of 2016. I completely rebranded their image to match their energy and mission. I developed logos for Being Libertarian, Voluntaryism in Action, Iowa Libertarians, and a cryptocurrency wallet operating system Liberty Wallet. My devotion to Being Libertarian has helped the Facebook page grow by 400,000 followers and has allowed me incredible connections such as working with former presidential candidate Ron Paul to design a shirt.
