Biography

Welcome to my online portfolio!

My background includes 25+ years of experience in the Graphic and Advertising industries working in both the corporate and agency sides of the creative process. With my experience in Art Direction, Graphic Design, Project Management and Production, I can help provide the best possible solution for your communication needs, and a finished product you will be proud of!

My specialities include all facets of design, from logo creation, photo manipulation, everything from traditional print (brochures, direct mail, newsletters) to large format design (exhibit graphics, fleet graphics, billboards). I also have experience in designing for digital applications, including social media, site design and other electronic applications. My studies include four years of Fine Arts/Graphic Design at Ashland University for Visual Arts, and a one year affiliate program at the renowned Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

Thank you for taking time to view my work!
