About

I'm a senior level graphic / web designer with a knack for problem solving, creative strategy, and concise communication (visual and otherwise). I approach every project with its target audience in mind, applying broad big picture creative thinking to my process without losing sight of even the tiniest of details. I am inventive, witty, strategic, and out-of-the-box. As a team player and a natural leader both, I love to take direction and run with it just as much as I like to give direction. There's nothing that makes me happier than having an opportunity to collaborate with a group of like-minded individuals and rally together around an idea, each using our unique expertise to pull it off as a united team. I have a broad range of skills and experience that spans across print, web, digital, and social platforms. Skills include an extensive knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite, HTML & CSS coding, illustration, typography & typesetting, responsive web design, and photography. Experience includes email marketing, designing for social media, advertising campaigns, page layout, print design, video direction, and art direction.
