“Nothing is. Everything is in the process of being.” —Unknown

Digital Multimedia Designer Extraordinaire, at your service.

I am a versatile, energetic and passionate visual designer with over 18 years of print, web and interactive design experience. I know InDesign like the back of my hand and can wield a mean brush and pen in Photoshop and Illustrator. I can ripple cut like a pro and make pixels and vectors dance on timelines in Adobe Premiere and After Effects—while tapping out my own tune in Ableton Live.

I am also tri-lingual — speaking English, HTML and CSS.

With my trusty phone, tablet, laptop and DSLR as my constant companions, I work to shape, mold, excite and organize. With empathy as my secret weapon, I work to shape better, more engaging, more memorable user experiences.

A Jack-Of-All-Trades who has been both mentor and manager, I willingly jump into the trenches to get my hands dirty and lead by example. My interests in marketing and branding make me consider the numbers and find creative ways to expand a company's reach, while my technical prowess and love of bringing order to chaos makes me a good fit in nearly every creative situation.

So... How may I help you?

GRAPHIC DESIGN

From print to web to interactive and broadcast, I am nothing if not adaptable. I look for the opportunity to flex my multimedia muscle at every turn—often thinking of how marketing and branding campaigns bridge user experience gaps for maximum impact. My focus on the numbers AND the artistry, make me a unique fit in almost every creative situation.

PHOTOGRAPHY

As a self-taught, published, fashion and glamour photographer, I am currently creating images that fuse sensuality and geek culture. At times, bordering on erotic, my work is made to appeal to fans of the steampunk and gothic aesthetic with retro gamer, comic book and anime influences. My work is constantly evolving as I learn new techniques and expand beyond my comfort zone.

VIDEO + MOGRAPH

Media that moves has always been of interest to me. Combining the best of graphic design, 3D, photography and cinematography, MoGraph is a secret, forbidden dark art to me. I have tried fighting the urge to master the timeline to my own peril. Now the seductive powers of keyframes and graph editors are luring me to their siren song. Motion graphics may be my final undoing...
