I’m a professional designer currently seeking to fill a void in answers to questions. I graduated from art school with a BFA in Graphic Design nearly 19 years ago, and I’ve been creatively solving problems ever since. I’ve been a designer, an art director, a freelancer, and an owner of my own design practice in places as far-flung as L.A., metro Detroit, Washington D.C., and even Hong Kong. I address a broad range of tasks while managing multiple assignments across numerous business channels. My work includes design for editorial and publications; identity and branding; print and web advertising; websites and social media; events, staging, and exhibits; marketing collateral; and even retail products and apparel. I also provide project and resource management and sourcing, and process improvement strategies.
My career arc has been uncoventionally broad, teaching me not just how to be a great designer, but how to be an idea partner and a business asset. I’m nimble, shift gears precisely, and can communicate with all stakeholders to ensure target audiences are addressed uniquely. I’m a turn-key solutions supplier—a visual artist and a composer; a writer and a proof reader; a strategist and a process developer; a budgeter and a manager. It’s not about ego, it’s not about tension. It’s about reaching escape velocity from the mundane to create original, lasting, high-impact ideas.
If you’re interested, I welcome you to look through this site to learn more about my work experience, to view a sampling of my work, and to download an expanded selection of output. My full resume can also be downloaded here. I’m flattered you want to know me better, and I’d be happy to spill my guts if you need more info.
