about me…

I came out of the dark, the darkroom that is, over 20 years ago, when I transitioned from a 10-year career as a print photojournalist into the world of graphic design. Since then I have designed everything from logos, brochures, calendars and newsletters to full ad campaigns, billboards, restaurant menus, books, e-books and websites.


After years of shooting hard news, human interest feature stories, professional sports and fashion, I went back to school to learn to work with the Adobe’s InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Dreamweaver and cutting age graphic design programing, and have never stopped, constantly learning and utilizing the newest technology. Most of my work has been for the financial services industry, but design is design, and I can tailor my talents to any enterprise, big and small.


I have a strong sense of color and design that can take your ideas from a vague notion or napkin sketch to a full-blown concept, or I can work within your existing concept to move it forward.


To me, the design process is about collaboration. I can help you realize your goals and develop your brand. My aim is always to take your ideas and visions, and not only make them a reality, but help you be successful in using those ideas to connect with your clients and customers.
