Multimedia Marketing Designer Extraordinaire

I am a versatile, energetic and passionate visual designer with over 18 years of print, web, interactive and broadcast design experience.

I know Adobe InDesign like the back of my hand, and can wield a mean brush and pen in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. I can ripple cut like a pro and make pixels and vectors dance on timelines in Adobe Premiere and Adobe After Effects.

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

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

My experience as a business owner makes me consider the numbers and find creative ways to expand a company's reach. My technical prowess and love of bringing order to chaos makes me a good fit in nearly every creative situation.

I am a Jack-Of-All-Trades who has been mentor, manager, entrepreneur — and published glamour photographer. I willingly jump into the trenches to get my hands dirty and lead by example.

So, how may I help you?
