Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Bernie decided as a young man he wanted to live in Florida after visiting there on family vacations. After studying Fine Art at Ohio University he moved to Florida and enrolled at the Fort Lauderdale Art Institute where he graduated in Advertising Design.
Bernie spent many years in retail advertising learning everything about print production, designing and producing advertising material including catalogs, ads, mailers and magazines. The more time he spent in advertising the more he could see the internet was the future of advertising. He has been designing websites now for several years and is thrilled to be on the AS team.
