I'm a dynamic and skilled graphic designer with 15+ years of experience in the areas of print design, catalog design, brand/identity design and illustration, exhibit/retail design and project management. I am often working out how to make something better. I have a strong work ethic and crafty problem solving skills. My attention to detail and hands-on experience are what I try to bring to the table with every aspect of the creative process.
