I am an IT professional, visual designer, web developer, creative director, and all-around design specialist. For over 20 years I have been creating visual experiences for brands on both coasts in a variety of print and web formats. With my versatile design skills and knack for marketing, my goal is always to design solutions that look good and have impactful results for the brands I work with.
Conceptualizing, designing, and refining visual solutions that are based on customer and business needs; Being involved and leading all parts of the design process including user research, concept development, prototyping (low/medium/high), and working with developers.
I excel at combining data and creative thinking to make innovative decisions that generate actionable results. I love designing the customer journey and creating impactful campaigns that both prospective and current customers engage with. I am just as comfortable with InDesign or Illustrator as I am troubleshooting IT, optimizing SEO, tweaking CSS, or hand-stuffing media packets
Although my focus is on front-end web development, my skillsets straddle both front-end and back-end disciplines. As someone who has worked in marketing and web design for multiple decades, I know design is a constantly evolving process and I celebrate that process in both my professional and personal sides of life.
When I’m not designing or directing projects, I can usually be found carving lino blocks or having a moment of Zen redistributing metal type in my print shop.
