I specialize in smart design, created with careful research and thoughtful listening to you, the client, making your project better with the best book cover, identity, print, web, high-end invitations, and museum exhibit design. If you have a message to communicate, let me help you find your visual voice.

With over 11 years of design and branding experience, I can supply you with posters, brochures, apparel, icons, promotional materials, invites, announcements, packaging, advertising, signage, logos, websites and more. Anything and everything your successful large company, small business, museum, or special cause needs.

Outside of the studio, I teach as an Associate Professor of graphic design at The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), give design lectures, and participate in various portfolio reviews and exhibitions. Clients include Cinco Puntos Press, The El Paso Museum of Art, The Stanlee & Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts, and The Centennial Museum at UTEP.

Please take a look at my portfolio and don't hesitate to ask any questions. Read Less
