I am an Art Director, Graphic Designer and Illustrator looking to utilize my talents and experience to develop aesthetically engaging and functional work.


Art Direction & Graphic Design

During 15+ years of working as an Art Director and Graphic Designer, I have developed many successful print and web
projects including:
» Brochures, publications and collateral systems
» Visual identity and logo creation
» Websites, email communication and mobile apps
» Print and outdoor advertising
» Packaging, environmental graphics and direct mail

My extensive design experience and in-depth knowledge of the production process provide me with the ability to take projects from concept through completion.

I am comfortable working with other team members to achieve the best results for the project. I have also served as a mentor to younger designers, sharing my knowledge and ideas.


As an Illustrator, I have developed a definitive style that has brought me many rewarding projects in the past few years — as well as accolades from my peers. My work has been selected to appear in the 2011 and 2012 Communication Arts Illustration Annual.
