Every good design tells a story and every good designer has a story to tell.

My Story Begins like any other kid who discovers crayons at the age of two and never wants to put them away. I loved making up stories in my head and putting them on paper. In time the crayons wore down and I graduated to paints, material scraps, papers to rip, and clay to mold, in order to complete my stories. 

 

Left Brain, Right Brain. After earning a BFA  in Communication Design, I held design positions in both advertising agencies and non-profit organizations. Eventually I combined my right brain passion for communicating stories with my left brain curiosity for marketing strategy, by earning an MBA  in Marketing.

 

Becoming a Client. My business and design skills led me to positions at Citigroup where I not only developed new credit card products and promotional programs, but, as the client, I worked with advertising agencies on the development of the creative materials used as marketing support.  
 

But once a designer, always a designer and I've now come full circle, back to design and the creative process- the place where my true passions lie! And with this experience, I am ready and able to not only create design solutions, but to provide marketing support for any phase of your project.

 

Why hire me? Because when you hire me, you hire a designer, marketing professional and a true partner - someone who not only has a lot of enthusiasm for telling your story, but who believes strongly in the power of relationships and collaboration to achieve results, and who is dedicated to sharing in your success.

 

(And when you get to know me, you'll find that I much prefer tooting your horn through the work I do for you, than tooting my own, which is why I rely on my raving fans to toot for me!)
