About Me

My career has evolved from roots established in graphic design into one providing clients with quality results that are aesthetically and strategically balanced. I work to focus projects toward exceeding the required fundamental value, while optimizing the planning and process, all with a critical eye on visual detail. My interest in technology has steered my path toward interactive media, driving my desire to combine new elements with past experiences to create engaging solutions. Leading, and collaborating with, multi-disciplinary teams has provided the opportunity to be involved in all facets of large projects. I have found this involvement in the entire project life cycle from concept initiation, through production, to completion and post-analysis, to be very rewarding. Successful results have come from understanding the different perspectives of client contacts, directors of marketing, and brand managers.
