I'm a designer/art director/creative extraordinaire--I want to create concepts, ideas, and visual language that have depth and texture...the kind of design that moves people. And I want to work with other people who give a flying flip about the work. Because it matters. And even if it doesn't matter to the client, it matters to me. This is my creative life. My work is a part of my story.
I am a dependable, tenacious, award-winning designer who is friendly, has a rock solid work ethic, a fast learner and has a great sense of humor. I am able to master a wide range of responsibilities such as managing design teams, overseeing and mentoring junior designers, creating effective and energetic design solutions through collaboration with marketing teams, maintaining web content, participating in corporate branding strategies, and adapting quickly to whatever is thrown at me.
In addition to my robust digital background, I also have extensive experience designing printed material such as a creating catalog from the ground up, which includes concept, production, and management. I love to design and therefore enjoy the design world and other people and positions within it.
Besides design, I love to play in the kitchen (wedding cakes and brownies to tamales and BBQ), ride Side x Sides and travel, sharing my love for design, food and globe-trotting with my kids.
