THE WORK PART
I am a designer. I design for the web, for print, for store shelves, table tops, labels, billboards, logos and identity design. It feels great to give someone the tools they need to promote and grow their business more efficiently.
I work with industry leaders in retail, marketing, advertising, user experience, product development and packaging. I also work for small local businesses. I aim to exceed all client expectations with every project.
A LITTLE HISTORY
I graduated from San Jose State University with a degree in Graphic Design (Illustration Emphasis). I pursued mixed media illustration while secretly developing a love affair with my Apple computer.
In 1998, I found myself in the heart of silicon valley and so I began working for Adobe, where I created original sample art that shipped with Adobe Photoshop 5.0, Illustrator 8.0, and ImageReady. I assisted in developing new features for these programs while creating artwork and marketing materials for demo’s, tutorials, brochures, and web.
The diversity and range of design projects coming my way drove me to pursue freelancing. I love a challenge. I am a classically trained artist with extensive experience in graphic and UX design. I have the ability to anticipate and encapsulate the needs of my clients. I “get” what my clients need and I enjoy making it happen.
I currently work as a Freelance Graphic & Web Designer in Fairfield, Iowa.
My websites have received two outstanding website awards from the Web Marketing Association. One of those awards was for a site I designed for Black & Decker promoting one of their products.
