Graphic Design Specialist

Honey Doer & Doggie Dad

Insustrious and diversely-skilled, I have over 20 years experience in developing engaging and innovative digital
and print designs for clients in broad range of industries. As my portfolio attests, I am highly adept at visual strategy, layout development, branding, print and digital media. I'm comfortable working with both large corporations and local mom & pop's on their respective advertising and marketing needs.

When not chained to my computer, you can find me in the kitchen, listening to the game while making something that takes entirely too much effort.
