Work History

Over the years I have obtained an expansive range of knowledge in design-driven strategy, concepting, development, production and management for product, print and digital based projects. Whether I'm working on an illustration, a social media campaign, a press-check, or an overseas product manufacturing process; my creative design and communication skills enable me to envision, lead and develop effective solutions for just about any design challenge. That being said, what's really important are the people and the work atmosphere. With the right team and the right place a lot of great things can happen. I'm comfortable with wearing a lot of different design related hats or simply sticking with one and wearing it really well.
