Creativity is inventing, experimenting, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes
& having fun.

GRAPHIC DESIGNER |  CREATOR 
HUMANITARIAN  |  ARTIST  |  MARKETER

For the past 10+ years, I have worked in the graphic design industry in a variety of facets. From freelance to working within a company, I always bring a high level of enthusiasm, performance and creativeness that is appreciated and valued. I am well versed in the creation of logos, final output of printed material (catalogs, brochures, business cards, advertisements, etc.), digital graphics such as sliders and static ads, commercial photography, designing for promotional items (e.g. shirts, mugs, pens, tote bags), as well as having excellent writing, proofreading and editing skills.

I love photography and my favorite subject is a great sunset. I just adore how the vibrant light and colors play among the clouds.

GIVING BACK
I regularly make and donate various goods to help those in need.

In December 2021, I donated 98 Knitted Hats and 122 Sensory Beads to Busy Hands of Michiana. Knowing my handmade items help hospice patients, nursing home residents, those with Autism, the homeless, and many others is a wonderful feeling.
