Hello, thank you for visiting my online portfolio… Feel free to contact me with any questions, using the contact form on this site.
Overview: As a Senior Designer/MarCom Manager for a private corporation I’m tasked with the development and production of all visual communications from print advertising, website design to event coordination and all things in-between. While brand, look & feel and keeping a consistent message is important, so is the company’s bottom line. I’ve learned to develop working relationships with key personnel from all departments. Obeying strong work ethics and seeing the “big picture”, even with the smallest of projects has been vital to success. As an integrator, I can weave the necessary elements to get the job done, and provide a finished product that demands results.
Where I want to be: I thrive on success and the satisfaction of others. A professional, yet easy going and creative environment is the perfect ecosystem for me. A melting pot of projects, a team with passion and desire are perfect co-workers. I work to live, but don’t live to work, weekends are a retreat and lunch breaks are for brainstorming. Ideally, I fit in where I can, when I’m needed I’m at my best, and I’m always looking for an adventure.
