My passion lies in drawing beauty from ordinary things and sharing it for the world to see. I am an artist at heart, creating to illuminate both the familiar and the unusual. I collect experiences from other cultures and portray them through photography. I craft original pieces from driftwood I find in natural environments. I explore new projects every day to reinvigorate new forms of art that I am creating, such as a photo compilation of snapshots from my youth reimagined from a different life perspective. I mobilize graphic design in my professional life to enhance clients’ artistic and professional expression.
For more than 20 years, I have specialized in graphic design. I have generated revenue for startup businesses, design and marketing agencies, web firms, and in-house marketing departments in various industries. Along my professional journey, companies and clients have recognized me through dozens of awards for creativity, messaging, and branding.
I launched my career by obtaining a Bachelor of Arts degree with concentrations in graphic design and a focus on photography, along with both print and web media. I later owned my own business for nearly ten years, working with companies of all sizes and an array of different objectives.
I am a very active photographer, videographer, guitarist and hot pepper horticulturist (and occasional practical jokester in the office)!
