Title

GRAPHIC DESIGNER – CREATIVE DIRECTION

Biography

By blending the elements of design, illustration and photography, I have been able to create a versatile and award-winning style. My goal is to create compelling imagery that conveys the ultimate visual story and is tailor-made to my client’s tastes and individual design needs. My ability to learn quickly has enabled me to wear many hats in the design industry, and has given me the opportunity to work with high-profile clients on a variety of complex projects. Although an excellent self-starter, I prefer working on a team that fosters high regard for the creative process, welcomes innovative ideas and can appreciate the dynamic, yet engaging nature of design. I live in Southern California where you could find me strumming my Martin acoustic guitar while composing a comical ditty.
