I am an advocate for graphic design that achieves specific communication goals and maintains brand consistency.
I develop and champion for creative, insightful and user-centric solutions.
I am skilled at print, identity and interactive design & production as well as brand, design and project management.
I’m a “big idea” kind of designer, always developing a strong conceptual foundation to give my designs a rational reason to be the way they are. Everything is intentional and serves the big idea. I also have the experience to smoothly guide projects through the production process to completion.
I have the business acumen to usefully contribute to the marketing and communication strategies that drive projects to be initiated. I focus on understanding both the business situation and the specific end-user’s desires to find a place where they intersect and use that as my starting point.
I value the relationships I build with my clients. I work very closely with them to understand their business challenges and requirements in order to develop useful and accurate creative briefs and estimates.
I am a hyper-organized project manager, easily tracking the details of many jobs simultaneously and keeping them within budget, on schedule and on brand. I have successfully managed others, effectively delegating tasks, providing useful feedback, and training and mentoring juniors.
I am easy to work with, personable, reliable and professional in presentation and attitude.
I have a BFA in graphic design, fifteen years of professional experience in diverse environments ranging from small firms to in-house departments to freelance. Specifically, I have a deep understanding of the insurance, architecture, energy and financial services industries. I am expert in the standard graphics and office software programs for both Mac and PC.
I live & work in Houston, Texas.
