experience

I have worked in the field of graphic design for over 15 years and have enjoyed success as a freelance artist, in-house creative, and independent contractor. My nerves of steel and never-say-die attitude were forged in various fast-paced environments including advertising and publishing. My wellspring of creativity and dedication to artistic vision hail from a wide range of freelance experience throughout my career. I have a strong eye for design and brand management, a knack for finding and presenting a compelling narrative, and the communication skills to navigate all manner of projects smoothly down the road to completion. Whether you are looking for design help on a  project basis, or feel your art department could use a boost of veteran creativity and efficiency, I would be happy to apply my expertise toward your future success.
