I have been fortunate throughout my career in art and design to have expanded the scope of my creative abilities to include a unusually large breadth of work. This has included many design disciplines such as art direction, graphics, marketing and the conceptualization and development of environments. I love the creative process that in turn yields both the vision of the customer and their return on their investment. It is my intention to unite with a company that can utilize my passion for creating compelling and functional design that facilitates our mutual growth and success.
