Roger graduated from Judson on December 2009 with a BA in Studio Art, and went on to earn an MFA in Illustration from the Savanna College of Art and Design. Since his time at Judson, he’s worked for the Art Department at Ellsworth Community College in Iowa, assisting with drawing and painting classes, then as graphic designer for the local newspaper where he soon became a full time photographer. In 2013 he was awarded several honors for his photographs, including “Best Breaking News Photo” and “Best Sports Photo.” Today he works as the coordinator for international and multicultural students at Ellsworth Community College. He believes this is where God wants him, helping students with their career paths and impacting in their personal lives.
Roger says that, “Serving has been a big part of my life as a Christian and what better way to do that than in this position.” He also continues to work as a freelance artist, designer and photographer. His works include children books illustrations, logos for large companies and small businesses, and corporate and commercial photography. “I can’t never stop drawing or painting, it’s something that I can’t live without. Judson Professors opened my eyes to see what I was capable of. They always encourage me to look for more, to stay hungry, always pushing me. I will thank them my entire life for that.”
