About Me

FROM BUDDING BIOLOGIST TO SEASONED CREATIVE PROFESSIONAL

I am a creative professional with over 30 years experience in the visual communications field, with 15+ years art direction and creative team management. My skills are focused on working with clients to develop original ideas and provide creative solutions. Born and raised in Western New York, I initially started college as a biology major.

When the rote memorization that is required became mundane and creatively unchallenging, I decided to switch schools and majors. It was the best move I could have made, though my inquisitive nature that led me to biology still plays an important role in my creative development.

My professional career began as a graphic designer for the local CBS television station where I built my computer graphics skills. I advanced to art director at the local NBC station where I quickly developed management functions. My longest employment of nearly 19 years was with a web development company where I had the opportunity to build and manage a team of as many as ten and the good fortune to work on creative and web projects with Fisher-Price and Mattel.

When the owner of that company decided to close the business and retire, I decided I would try to grow my freelance work as I enjoy the diversity of clients and projects that it provides.

Why Work With Me

Over my career I have been fortunate to work with many great people—both peers and clients. In that time I have strengthened my skills through applied experience and focused collaboration. I am detail-oriented and am extremely responsive. It’s about listening to a client’s needs and working to provide creative solutions on time and within budget.
