About

For over 18 years I have been solving client's problems by professionally crafting beautiful, functional print and digital solutions for organizations both large and small. Each project comes with challenges and learning opportunities which are tackled with enthusiasm, grace, and tenacity. While projects may have similar technologies and goals, each one has a unique solution which is discovered through discussion, research, experience, exploration, ingenuity, and teamwork. I utilize this all in reaching the ultimate goal of providing the client with an appropriate solution and am proud of my portfolio to date.
