As a freelance designer and consultant, I work independently for a wonderful variety of clients as well as sub-contract for acclaimed creative agencies. Over about two decades, I've approached every project with eagerness to listen and problem solve. I am a professional, agile, collaborative partner. I've worked with clients on a broad spectrum of projects: complex websites, logos and brand identity packages, stationery kits, catalogs, studio photography, illustrations, events, retail packaging, and more. (I've even been hired to QA the work of other designers.) I leverage knowledge, skills, and experience to maximize the impact of a budget and advocate for solutions that have proven to work. I tend to seek work that helps people and contributes positively to the world.
