Be creative. Design awesome stuff. Have fun along the way.
That’s always been my approach to new projects, new clients and new experiences. Over the course of 20+ years, I’ve been fortunate enough to encounter that mindset in a variety of experiences; in-house design departments, a NYC boutique agency, a Seattle startup, and alongside numerous freelance clients, alike—from my current role as Art Director to leading a small team or new clients through the creative process, it’s always about the journey and a visually gratifying outcome.
In my years as Lead Designer and Art Director, I’ve created and overseen brand development, product launches, packaging design, email and advertising campaigns, retail store and booth graphics, brand campaigns, web design, photography and food styling direction, logo design, print design, digital illustration and various user experiences.
I’ve developed strong relationships to deliver strategic and emotionally creative solutions that successfully achieves my client’s and company’s vision and business goals. I’ve also collaborated with a wide range of talented individuals along the way; closely interacting with marketing departments, sales teams, product developers, creative directors, account managers, copywriters, chefs, photography crews, food stylists, licensing companies, company brokers and print vendors.
I’m currently based in Seattle, as an Art Director and Independent Contractor.
