WANTS TO HELP YOUR BRAND SHINE
I’m a dedicated creative professional with broad and deep experience
in design, communication, and people and process management.
I am a talented designer.
I care about the concept and the details.
I know the creative process.
I love deadlines.
I solve problems on the fly.

I learn from every project.
I don’t take myself too seriously.
I want to do good work with good clients.
ART DIRECTION & DESIGN
I’m an award winner because I design an on-brand point of view into every project — one that respects the message and the audience. And I bring a commitment to excellence, a devotion to details and an unflagging sense of ownership.
Trust me to guide your project. I can assemble a team, negotiate and manage a budget, orchestrate process and meet deadlines — and adjust course when requirements change. I value your resources and invest them wisely.
I am inspired by managing a team: learning, teaching and growing professionally and personally. I manage to strengths, lead with respect, foster confidence and encourage collaboration. And I want us all to have fun.
Styles come and go. Good design is a language, not a style.
I built and managed teams of designers and production artists providing editorial, packaging, marketing, advertising and event design. In addition to creating most-beautiful-in-niche products, we increased efficiency and on-time performance, while regularly coming in under budget.
