I believe successful design is the result of creativity and thoughtful decision-making. Over
the course of my career, I have worked in both the catalog business and print industry. With
over eight years of experience managing a group of designers for the fastest-growing direct
marketers of a technology company, I have proven myself capable of handling both large and
small jobs in a fast-paced environment.
