I've been creating innovative designs for over 20 years now. These range from products, packaging, point of purchase displays, store fixtures, events, exhibits, and environments. Currently, I am the VP of Design for DesignShop, a full service face to face marketing agency, located in Orlando, Florida. The most exciting part of my job is working together with my design team to create exciting new experiences that exceed the customers expectations, while crushing the competition and winning the bid.
