As a graphic designer with a solo practice, I work collaboratively with my clients, generating ideas, developing visual strategies and bringing them to fruition. For me, even with my many years of experience, the process of design development is still exciting and rewarding; a time when researching, questioning, investigating, observing, documenting and creating all intersect and the viable paths to the best solutions emerge.
And as an adjunct lecturer at both Sacramento State University and UC Davis, I have the privilege of being immersed in design environments where new ideas and experiments are continually made and tested.
I have worked on a large variety of projects including logos and brand identity, brochures, magazines, signage, general collateral and advertising for both printed and digital media. My work has been recognized by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Sacramento Advertising Club, the American Institute of Graphic Arts, and Graphic Design USA.
I received my BFA in graphic design from the RISD and my MS from MIT for work done at the Visible Language Workshop. At both institutions I was fortunate to be able to study under some amazing people, including: Malcolm Grear, Gerald Unger, Chuck Bigelow, Muriel Cooper and Ron McNeil.
Over the years I have worked with people in related fields and can partner up with them to put together a flexible, dedicated and collaborative approach to projects.
I am looking to taking on new clients or freelance work and look forward to connecting!
