About

I am an art director, manager, and graphic designer with over 26 years of experience and expertise in a wide range of media and technologies—from traditional print design to the latest in responsive digital design.

I have a distinct passion for creating exciting visual branding and carrying that branding through as a unified vision across a full range of offerings. I shine when part of a team of other talented professionals, and can and will pitch in at every level of the creative process, from concept through completion. I’m highly collaborative and relish the chance to interact with team members to create compelling media. I strive to maintain myself on the cutting edge of software and technology and expand my mastery of design software.
