About image bw round.jpg
 

As a full-service communication designer, I am able to concept, create, collaborate, and coordinate your design needs from initial ideation through to final production, handling as many or as few of the steps in between as you'd like. 

My DESIGN SUPER-POWER is my balanced left/right brain approach to design – whole-brain thinking that allows me to be a creative powerhouse while keeping my feet on the ground of business strategy and an eye on production methods. Unlike many other designers, I get technical.

My diverse background in graphics, communication design, web design, and industrial/interior design offers a well-rounded creative backdrop for any design project, and more than 20 years of experience to back me up.
