About Me

About me, hmm… What can I say really? My name is Christopher Vaughn, I am a self-taught Graphic Designer from Newport News, VA. I am usually on a PC, but hopefully will be making the transition to a MAC for everything non-gaming related. Oh yeah, gaming… Those who know me will say I am a huge gaming nerd, I have been since I was able to pick up my Dad’s Atari 2600 back in the 80s. I am pretty much a Sony Fanboy, and will be to the end. I have a wonderful fianc√©e named Maggie, who is a Chef in training @ the California School for Culinary Arts. She is so talented, I could go on for hours on what she can create with just a couple of left overs, but I’ll save that for another time.

I’ve been doing Graphic Design since the 10th grade, when I picked up a copy of Adobe Photoshop 7. Ahh, those were the days man, granted it wasn’t the first release of Photoshop, but it was my first, and I fell in love. I first started messing around with filters, which I think everyone does when they first start using Photoshop. From there I taught myself the toolbar, and getting to know the environment. After about a month I was pumping out, what I thought, was beautiful pieces of art, which today looks night-and-day to what I’m making now.I attended Thomas Nelson Community College, majoring in Graphic Design for a little under 2 years. Before graduating with my Associates Degree, I formed a company called Visual Unlimited with two friends Kiel Durst and Chris Moore. It was basically formed out of annoyance from working for people who didn’t care about us. We were a small web/graphic design shop, based our of Moore’s house. It didn’t do as well as we all had hoped, but I learned more in the 3 years of running it, than most do at 4 year Universities majoring in Business Management.

As well as being a huge video game nerd, I would have to say I am much more into movies. I dream of being a Screenwriter one day, and have quite a few ideas floating around up there. I would kill for a room with the following

  • Sony 60″ 1080p LCD TV
  • Sony PS3 (for my gaming AND my DVD/Blu-Ray needs)
  • HD cable of some sort (Verizon preferebly)
  • 7.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound
  • Movie posters of my favorite movies covering the wall
  • A wall full of my favorite movies
  • Last but not least, a super-comfy couch!
