Using my expertise with Adobe Creative Suite, I created and produced fresh original designs for brochures, invitations, business cards, posters, books, and other printed materials. By working together with press operators, we raised efficiencies and reduced the costs of printed pieces. Also, I minimized rework by creating design solutions than earned quick approval.

Every project should be approached as a new problem to solve. I try my best to ensure the designs I create are appropriate, meet and exceed expectations and stand the test of time. Here's a small sampling of what I have done.

Infographics aren't always the most glamourous information, case in point, this infographic was based on statistics and numbers. It's a welcome challenge to come up with interesting graphics to represent the information.
