Troy has always been involved in art. After taking a year off after high school, he saw a commercial for the graphic design program at The Art Institute of Philadelphia. After some serious research, Troy enrolled in the Graphic Design program during the fall of 1998. Troy chose the college because the computer training there was more intense than many other schools, and it gave equal amount of training in liberal arts as well as technical design.
Going beyond his graphic design curriculum, Troy took an html class, which was outside of his major. He proceeded to learn web design and with that came Flash animation. He thought that by enhancing his skill set, the more marketable he would become to employers. An instructor he had several quarters back introduced Troy to a business owner who was doing some cutting edge CDROM development with Flash. Troy was hired while in school, as a Graphic Designer for projects.
Shortly after graduating in spring of 2001 Troy took a new design position at a small advertising agency, where he did a great deal of web and graphic design. It was not long into this job before Troy decided to venture out on his own. Now degreed with work experience, and a better understanding of HTML and Flash, Troy set out to start his own company.
Troy along with a childhood friend, who had graduated from Temple University's Marketing and Advertising Program, formed VisionLine Media in 2001. VisionLine is a multimedia design and advertising firm, focusing mainly on digital media. The firm has continued to grow annually, and it actively represents hundreds of clients from a myriad of industries. Their portfolio includes: International and Fortune 500 companies down to Sole Proprietors. Troy has had a hand in developing all projects produced at VisionLine Media, including over 150 websites.
Today, VisionLine is always looking for new opportunities, as well as offering internship opportunities for up and coming graphic and web designers. Troy has made great achievements in the world of design and marketing. He looks forward to continued success for himself and VisionLine in the future.
