Creative Director / Art Director / Communications Designer


Over my career, I have delivered designs solutions to Fortune 500 companies, universities, healthcare providers, and tech start-ups. The solutions span digital design, brand development, print and packaging design, web and interactive design, and trade show graphics.

I’ve assembled and led highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams of designers, copywriters, production designers, as well as interactive developers and good, old-fashion offset printers.

As a business owner, I have acted as the business development guy, account executive, project manager, creative and art director, and designer.

I am a hands-on, process-oriented visual communications designer who is well-versed in all facets of the design process. I root myself in my clients’ business goals and objectives and am always looking for ways to creatively improve the communication and design standards of my clients while continuously pushing and improving my own skills and knowledge.
