I earned my Associates Degree in Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design in northern California, where I grew up. I’ve been working as a graphic designer, fine artist, and illustrator for over 30 years, which means I started my career working at a drafting table using technical pens, speccing type, and creating awesome marker comps!
During the first half of my career I worked at several different advertising agencies, high tech companies, and design firms throughout the Silicon Valley. I’ve been to many trade shows, art directed numerous photo shoots, managed a multitude of press checks, and worked with high-caliber clients such as Fox Racing, Apple Computer, and Bell Sports.
Since relocating to Boulder, Colorado, my focus has shifted to partnering with both small to mid sized companies and solopreneurs in order to help them create beautiful and effective brands that support their business goals, whatever those might be.
I blend my experience in graphic design, fine art principles, brand strategy, and best online marketing practices with my unique ability to create purposeful works for my clients. Any decent designer can create something “pretty” or “cool,” but with the high volume of businesses popping up every day, it’s not enough. Your brand has to clearly communicate to your ideal clients and customers: who you are, what you do, and why you do what you do.
In order to create a solid foundation from which to grow branding and therefore their businesses, I walk new clients through my three-point brand strategy process before anything else. This allows me to produce the best possible solution for my customers business, brand, audience, and goals.
