I believe that building brands require more than just understanding type & color. Since I started in 2004, as a packing and branding designer, I’ve always wanted to be involved with all aspects of this building process. I don’t just have a passion for design, but for brand strategy & language. My technical skills, attention to detail & holistic design approach has opened to the door for so many opportunities for a wide range of brand categories.
I have been responsible for managing wonderful teams of talent as well as a design lead for every client I’ve crossed paths with. I believe in being more than just a Designer or Director and have the vision, drive & talent to take brands into uncharted territory.
I am at my core a candid communicator and unapologetically creative. I believe that most problems can be solved by listening, sharing the process and working together where everyone that they contributed to a common goal in a meaningful way. My skill set & work ethic has led down some amazing roads and I hope the trend continues; it truly has made my career path into the most beautiful patchwork quilt!
I can bring much insight on brands from a wealth of different industries and have been doing packaging, branding, and illustration on some of the biggest brands to date.
As a conscientious individual, I have a strong work ethic and enjoy the collaborative nature of our industry. I’m a self-starter with a take-charge personality, priding myself on efficiency and time management as well as the ability to hash out ideas quickly and execute them proficiently. I am humorous, helpful and most of all dedicated to crafting strategic design solutions that help build worlds and satisfy my clients.
