WHO & WHY
I am a problem solver with a passion for design. I design for the web, for print, for store shelves, table tops, labels, billboards, logos, and brands. It feels great to give someone the tools they need to promote and grow their business more efficiently.
I work with forward thinkers in retail, marketing, advertising, user experience, product development and packaging. I also support small local businesses. I aim to exceed client expectations with every project.
I currently work as a Freelance Web Designer & Brand Consultant in Fairfield, Iowa.
A LITTLE HISTORY
In 1998, after graduating from San Jose State University, I found myself in the heart of silicon valley. Good fortune and a little determination landed me a job at Adobe Inc. I created digital imagery that shipped with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and ImageReady. I assisted in testing and developing new features for these programs while creating artwork and marketing materials for demo’s, tutorials, brochures, and web.
The diversity 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.
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 new products.
