I’m more than an emmy-nominated entertainment industry graphic designer with over ten years of experience and a passion for the business. I’m also a published writer and a self-directed organizational thinker with a background in project management. I can execute ideas beautifully from concept to set, and I offer a wide variety of creative solutions:

      • Creative Design: My work has been featured on NPR, showcased in art museums, and published in college art textbooks.
      • Eloquent Writing: I can generate powerful, believable taglines and copy on-the-fly.
      • Clearance Knowledge: I have experience designing elegant, realistic graphics that will clear.
      • Holistic Thinking: I have a strong understanding of print production, general fabrication and graphics installation.
      • Self-Direction: I’m a proactive team member and an excellent communicator. I use a structured workflow while meeting deadlines.
      • Insight: My industry background and life experience give me the ability to instinctively design graphics that are relevant to your production.
