About Me

I’ve worked the gamut from corporations, print/online publications, financial world, consultant to startups, freelancer, and in the agency world. Did this change my design tastes or work process? It is a evolving process. It is a process to find the correct pace and style to communicate effectively. But that is what design allows me to do, communicate effectively, and whether that is verbally or visually it is the medium that I need to work with to get the job done. Does the end product reflect everything that is me? No, not completely. I infuse what I think is a good design, but I work hard to listen to what the project requires. Point me at a problem to solve, and I will try. Let me explore with software, imagery, type, motions/actions, and space hierarchy. How we find the answer is also a process that is part of design, and is very interesting to me. Who am I? I’m a designer and what that means is I try and communicate effectively and currently my tools are visuals.
