BEYOND THE VISUAL
WHAT TO EXPECT
From the Mitten to the Island
I began my graphic design career in the early 90's in Detroit, Michigan.
My large variety of clients included museums, hospitals, print shops and
countless others. I joined the in-house promotional team of a publishing company,
Gale Research, where I was promoted to Senior Art Director. I transitioned to
high-end art direction working on the Daimler-Chrysler account at a large agency.
A break from work came with my relocation to Hawaii’s Big Island in 2003,
where I began a family and spread new roots. My expertise was utilized at West Hawaii Today's North Hawaii News office as their lead graphic artist, where
I worked for six years. Throughout my career I've taken on a variety of freelance
jobs, designing everything from business cards to billboards. My goal has always
been to provide meticulous, efficient and effective work. I look forward to many
more years of helping clients shine!
The compliment I most often hear from clients is that I'm fast. Backed by years of practice, I've become a quality producer, while being able to offer quick turnaround. Good design is one-half aesthetics and one-half human psychology. My software fluency and my skill at pinpointing clear messages combine to create effective products - and happy clients!
See what else clients have to say.
I can write, too.
Nearly all the headlines and copy concepts here in my samples are my creation.
I am able to write all the copy for most pieces. Effective copy is the perfect partner to quality design work.
I am here to help you meet your goals.
All designers – and clients – have their own working style. I strive to be clear and efficient throughout the time line of each project.
