As a designer, I work cost effectively to bring marketable ideas to production. By working with company marketing teams, and pulling from a diverse skill set, I help to visualize quantitative, and even more so, qualitative information, allowing company leaders to visualize and discuss use-case scenarios and decypher abstract ideas. Specialties: Envisioning, Product Design/Development, Graphics, Art Direction, Illustration, Education, Sandwich Making and figuring things out.
