Brief Overview

I create colorful graphics in the San Francisco Bay Area, from large-scale posters to bookmarks to websites.

My strong visual sense and editorial background can help you sharpen your message, whether you're with a small business, a nonprofit company, or a high-tech corporation.

I am familiar with every aspect of the design and production process: presenting concepts; art-directing photo shoots; working with illustrators, stock agencies, web programmers, printers, and other outside vendors; readying digital files for print; attending press checks, etc.

I have expert knowledge of Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, and extensive knowledge of Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Acrobat, and Microsoft Office. I have basic fluency in HTML and CSS, strong familiarity with WordPress, and an acquaintance with PHP and Javascript.

I have lengthy professional experience writing, editing, and proofreading.
