View Resume

As a Senior Graphic Designer with over thirteen years of industry experience within brand consultancies, and internal creative groups; my skill sets are wide ranging from concept and brand development to project management and collateral design.

My goal as a Graphic Designer is to develop thoughtful solutions. I have the opportunity to persuade an audience to actively engage with their visual world. I enjoy analyzing a problem and creating solutions that satisfies the objectives of stakeholders and assist in building on a brands core values.

I truly believe that design has the ability to inform and educate, as well as captivate the imagination. I am constantly collecting images which inspire me. I have an interest in all areas of visual communications, whether it is in the photos of Lee Friedlander or the miniature worlds of Joseph Cornell. I think Tibor Kahlman was a genius. I am informed by Swiss Modernism, De Stijl, Pop Art and Abstract Expressionism. I appreciate bending but not breaking the rules.
