I'm a seasoned hands-on art director who is passionate about getting my
clients the results they want.
Another thing I am passionate about is thoughtful pure design (good design) and being friendly to our environment. Therefore, whenever possible, I do what I can to ensure that printed projects use recycled biodegradable materials and I strive for them to have greater longevity. I find this good design approach saves time and money while helping to build positive brand equity.
Leveraging more than 15 years in spearheading the design of corporate
and brand identities, packages, integrated marketing communications
and interactive designs, I contribute a solid knowledge of the creative
development process and a clear understanding of client needs.
Since 1992, I have worked salaried, freelance and contract positions for
a variety of leading
design studios, agencies and in-house clients. Professionally, I have often
managed a myriad of projects, while art directing
with clients, copywriters, designers, web developers, account executives,
photographers and vendors. I have designed successful
for major brands, such as America Online, AT&T, American Red Cross,
Franklin Templeton, Numi Tea, Peerless Lighting, ProHealth, Restaurants Unlimited, Inc., Spice Islands, The Learning
Company and Wells Fargo.
My creative capabilities extend across multiple
venues. In addition to my professional areas
of practice, I have also successfully executed projects
in interior design, painting, illustration, jewelry and event production. My
personal interests in community development,
and humanitarian projects inform
my vision of applied design in service
to improve our world.
