Aloha!

I'm a conceptual and collaborative freelance graphic designer with over 18 years experience. My focus is on printed marketing materials and package design, including copywriting. I also direct the creation, content and flow of online projects.

I enjoy coming up with original designs or ad concepts, either as part of a group brainstorm or solo, as inspiration strikes. I can help you build a brand from the ground up or work within existing brand guidelines to strengthen what's already in place. My goal is to create layouts that are not only precise and on-target, but also ones where the visuals and copywriting work together in a way that connects on an emotional level. I am a full-service designer - from initial concept to final layout and press-ready files. I also have contacts with various printers and can provide excellent quotes.

My award-winning work spans a wide variety of industries, from national Fortune 500 financial companies such as Wells Fargo, Farmers Insurance, and Morgan Stanley to package design for companies such as the Florida Beer Company and the Woof Gang Bakery Franchise. I have worked in many creative environments such as in-house art departments, catalogs, direct-mail marketing and was also a partner of The Creative Underground, a brand development and advertising agency.

Let me put my experience to work for you!
