I am an artist, educator, and graphic designer based in Denver, CO.

My process is highly collaborative; as a teacher I've learned that telling students what to do never works, and, frankly, is super boring. Through conversation I can guide my students towards the ideal means for their expression – and similarly I can guide you to the best expression of your design vision.

My design process follows that formula; finding the best means to get your ideas across through collaboration and my expert advice.

Speaking of expert advice, as fair warning, I will guide you away from using starbursts, making your logo bigger, or the use of Papyrus and/or Comic Sans. I think that's fair, don't you?

I have worked in commercial design for almost 20 years in a variety of industries, including Automotive, General Contracting, and Pharmaceuticals where I created brand identities, websites, email blasts and print ads.

I also have 8 years and counting of experience teaching Graphic Design and Digital Art at the college and univeristy level. Those who can also teach, as they say (that's what they should say, at any rate) .

If you are interested in working together, check out my portfolio, browse my services, and contact me with any questions or to start on that project.
