Growing up, my notebooks were filled with scribbles of cartoon characters, spaceships, fat graffiti letters, hot rods and hair metal band logos. I wanted to be a cartoonist but didn’t think I had any good stories to tell. Then I heard about Graphic Design and everything changed.

I have worked as a designer for over 20 years. During that time, I have had the opportunity to work across many industries and have worked with clients both big and small. from local start-ups to companies with an international presence. I believe that the best creative is a combination of a good strategic foundation, a strong concept and a message that hits the heart of the audience.

I currently work at Collegis Education, a net-revenue growth management company focused on empowering Institutions to successfully adapt and evolve in today’s higher education landscape. As a senior art director, I help oversee a team of designers and writers who produce high-quality traditional and digital creative for colleges and universities.
