What I do really well:

Design and illustrate! Leadership and creative direction; budgets and planning; brainstorming, presentations and pitches; social media channels; photo direction, editing and oversight of photoshoots; press checks and digital press proofs; copyproofing; production superhero; offset, digital and flexo printing processes; print vs. digital/when and why.

 

I am a passionate culture-shaper and ask all the questions to get the best work. I rely on total collaboration and contribution across all internal channels without ego. I have overseen numerous product launches, events and large-scale projects and have enjoyed every minute of them. And I appreciate the everyday (and even the hail mary) projects that help pay the bills. Most of all, I am a designer first, so the visual language of my
work always resonates and connects with its audience.
