I love being a designer. I've been in the business for 15 years and have designed for many markets: the home decor industry, independent filmmakers, and non-profits among others. I've worked as a freelancer, as a one-person in-house design department, and as a traffic coordinator for a large format print company.
I am very keen on keeping things simple, both in life and in my design. Stylistically, I lean towards clean lines, bold colors, easy to understand messages, and effective use of empty space. I also have an appreciation for the elegant, the sophisticated, and the stylized, and I often bring those to my work as well.
I do most of my design production in Adobe CS5 products: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign. I also produce work for administrative professionals using PowerPoint. When I'm not in front of a computer you'll find me making jewelry, out bird watching, or on the sofa with a good book.
