About Me

Having been in the design business for over 13 years and working for a variety of businesses. One of my strongest assets as a designer is my versatility. I don't have a signature style, which I feel allows me to better serve my clients. Through my academic and professional career I have tried to gather a broad knowledge of every aspect of the industry. I have a background in photography, illustration, print and production, as well as a basic knowledge of Web Design. One of the main reasons for going back to school has been to learn even more and broaden my technical abilities. I love connecting with people and working with them to figure out what their individual and business needs are. I also love doing research and I feel that these two strengths have allowed me to help my co-workers and clients reach their goals.

I have always approached a new project from an outside view. It's not about me, it's about the client and what they are trying to accomplish. It's about how I can help them take their idea and their vision and translate it into a visually appealing final product. Event when a client says they have no idea what they want they now their product. I get to know their product and their target market by getting to know them. This allows us to reach their goal together while I also reach my personal goal, which is to bring their vision to life. Whatever the business, whomever the client, whatever the product, whatever the message, whatever the question, I can help find a solution.
