A little about me....

I've always had an interest in art and knew from an early age it would play a major role in my profession one day... or science - I've always been fascinated with science, nature, bugs, and the environment too. Photography came into the game when I got my first camera in high school and it has stuck ever since (see my photography site). I eventually decided that art was my forte and graduated from college with an emphasis in graphic design. I found that graphic design fulfilled both my artisticness and perfectionism... photography was a good fit as well.

I have more than 20 years of professional experience in the design and direction of creative projects. As a designer it's important that I know my clients and their business. I interact with clients to understand their needs, take their intangible ideas and creatively mold them into unique solutions for their needs.

I use my creative abilities to give my clients' communications piece top-notch attention. I have a keen eye for layout, color, and typography, as well as photography, to develop a great design. I know the printing industry well and work with printers and other vendors for final production. I work comfortably in today's digital world with electronic proofs and comunications with clients, but also know the importance of face-to-face meetings with clients. I can pull together all your visual needs from print to web in a one-stop-shop.

I have worked for various companies, non-profits, government agencies and as a freelancer. Here's my Resume in PDF format for your perusal. Should you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to contact me.
