I view the world through the lens of art and design - color, typography, composition, and clarity of communication. Creative problem-solving is my specialty, and I believe it all comes down to the brand and its distinct promise. I’m an accomplished senior designer and art director. My goal is to boost brands and drive awareness with thoughtful, concept-driven solutions across print and digital channels.

I have experience in both small creative agency and corporate in-house environments. I’ve worked extensively in brand development that spans mediums, whether creating new logos, branding systems, packaging, and style guides, or adapting existing guidelines to new projects. I’m an effective communicator among cross-functional teams, partnering with clients or internal brands, collaborating with copywriters, creative directors and project managers, and art directing junior designers, illustrators and photographers. I’ve created presentations that won pitches for Costco, CVS, FAO Schwarz, Toys"R"Us, and Walgreens. I’ve also managed pre-press and file preparation for hundreds of projects.
