With over 20 years of professional graphic and web design experience centered in the Phoenix area, I've evolved with the industry as it has moved from print to web, from the internet as a passive tool to the dynamic interactivity and social playground of Web 2.0.
I offer more than just a knowledge of popular graphic software applications. I'm a hugely creative thinker, and I get excited when faced with how best to market a client or organization through uniquely clever designs, taglines, and captivating text. I believe a professional identity is critical to the success of a company. I believe it takes the right combination of design skill and an inherent understanding of an organization's driving force to pull that off.

I'm extremely driven to produce the highest quality, most impactive designs possible. Deadlines and the pressure of a quick turnaround help me clarify my vision and plan for maximum impact despite a short schedule.
