I have been a professional graphic designer/art director/creative director for over 20 years. Wow. That’s a long time. After graduating from Penn State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Advertising, I somehow landed in the wonderful, black and white world of newspaper – the fabulous Las Vegas Review-Journal.
When I realized that I was staring for hours on end at my box of 64 crayolas, I decided it was time to add some color back into my life as a designer. So, I moved to San Diego and began working for futuregraphx, a small design studio, and then became the Senior Art Director at Gavin & Gavin Advertising.
With an entrepreneurial spirit, I left the agency world behind and started my own independent design company. Working with several start-up companies, I helped to creatively guide (and design) a vision for their brand (logos, messaging, websites, print...)
Currently, I am a Senior Creative Director at Apex Events. While my focus is primarily in the automotive industry, I've worked in many other fields: entertainment, medical, retail and non-profit.
I live in Los Angeles and am drawn to simple, clean, fresh design. in color.
