ABOUT MY WORK
My job responsibilities include initial concept of a design through final production. I stay current with design trends, colors, font usage and imagery. Then I apply these trends to my clients needs to produce effective graphic and advertising design. I utilize the most up to date software including Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign on a Mac platform.
My portfolio displays almost every type of print media which includes, advertising, brochures, newsletters, letterhead, post cards, training material, flyers, P.O.P. displays, posters, banners, billboards,
t-shirts graphics and static web graphics.
WHY WORK WITH ME?
I am dedicated, loyal and committed to creating the best design for you. My communication skills are sharp and I actually listen to what you want. Along with my experience and expertise, I will recommend to you what I feel is in your best interest. I take pride in my work and will not stop until you are happy with your design.
I was born and raised in Southern California. I have been an artist my entire life and I am passionate about creating powerful graphic designs.
I served in the United States Army at Ft. Bragg, N.C. and in Schwaebisch Gmuend, Germany. I was Airborne and worked with a 4-man combat communications team. After the military, I received two Associate of Arts degree's in Design from Orange Coast College and FIDM.
I've worked in the corporate world for many years designing for various businesses that included direct mail marketing firms, action-sport apparel companies, Hoag hospital corporate communications, ad agencies, and fire departments. Some of my work displayed here was created for the clients of PSB Integrated Marketing.
I've been happily married for the last 20 years and I have two teenage daughters. I enjoy outdoor activities such as camping at the beach, in the mountains and in the desert.
I love sports (playing, watching, & coaching). I like to read, laugh and love. Mostly, I enjoy being with friends and family.
Currently, I continue creating effective advertising design
