Jeff holds degrees in graphic design, illustration and marine biology. His design and illustration work has been recognized by Communication Arts, The Art Directors Club of New York, Graphis, Print magazine, the AR100 (for Annual Report design), The Dallas Society of Visual Communications (DSVC), The American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), and The American Advertising Federation. His marine biology degree is not very useful to him at the moment.
