I'm passionate about functional, attractive and ultimately powerful visual communications in a variety of media, both print/static and digital/interactive/motion. I also believe strongly in being aware of ones limitations while working and pushing hard on a daily basis to surpass them.
I stumbled into this career and passion while on the path to being an educator and find that the two compliment each other well. I feel enormous joy, energy and satisfaction in working creatively, doing what I do, and welcome opportunities to explain my work, learn from and work with others.
