Jameson has been with the Zoo since 1990, first as a graphic designer and now as the Art Director. As a child Jameson spent hours and hours drawing mostly cars and underwater scenes. It wasn’t unitl he started working at the Zoo that animals became his favorite subject. The early years at the Zoo were often spent painting murals in the animal exhibits. More recently most of his time is spent on the computer designing, but he still enjoys the time he gets to spend illustrating many of the Zoo’s animals. Jameson loves to travel and has had the opportunity to view wildlife in Africa on four seperate trips to Rwanda, Ghana and Kenya. When not at work, he loves being at home with his family, and spending time hiking the Wasatch Mountains, often with his sketch pad in hand.
