I am a freelance graphic designer with 14 years of experience. I excel in corporate identity, print communications and website design - from concept to production. I have a BFA in Graphic Design from the Academy of Art University. I've done work for several small bay area design firms and have done most of my freelance work with Beal Creative, a strategic marketing and creative services firm. I work well alone but I also thrive in team environments.
