AREAS OF EXPERTISE
WHAT I DO
A self-starter with over 25 years of experience in agency, corporate and entrepreneurial settings. Visual, written and verbal communication skills ably demonstrate a passion for concept development.
Comfortable with leading a team or presenting to a client.
A creative problem solver!
I have helped businesses succeed, and have worn many hats: art director, client/vendor liaison, company cheerleader and trouble shooter! Tight deadlines and brand adherence are a way of life. I keep current with design trends and email best practices. I am proficient with Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Acrobat, MS Word & PowerPoint, Pages, Keynote, iMovie, Quark Xpress, Tumult Hype (animation) and can use iPad and Apple Pencil for drawing and designing.
I design and execute promotional materials to support the efforts of my employers and clients in their business growth. From corporate identities, magazine layouts and ad campaigns to brochures, slide presentations and email templates, I will enthusiastically and creatively help you round out your marketing program. I offer a combination of design and creative copywriting.
