My work as a designer and art director focuses on creating unique and functional communication solutions. I work with clients to dialog ideas and develop a plan to successfully communicate message. Projects are based on creative use of material, content, and context. I've worked as a designer and art director for museums, organizations, publications, marketing/promotions agencies, sign & exhibit graphics, and identity projects. I owned and operated a design business, and served as creative director and financial manager for a full-service design studio.
