Mission Statement

Simply put, I’m in business to make other companies successful. Less simply put, I design because I love it, because I’m good at it, and (again) because I’m a success machine. It’s a win-win.


With over thirty years in the business of design, I’ve been lucky enough to have worked on everything from big, year-long projects to one-hour, quick turn flyers. I’ve also been lucky with the people I’ve met along the way. I’ve worked with companies that have entrusted me to run marketing campaigns, build websites and write copy that sells. My favorite kind of job is any kind of job. Small projects are exciting because you have one chance to get the message across—the design has to be succinct and actionable. With larger, long-term projects, there is time to dive deep and explore many possibilities, and that’s fun, too.

Design also gives me the opportunity to utilize my illustration, drafting, and writing abilities (thanks, Mom and Dad). Because of that, design isn’t a cold process for me. It’s a mini storytelling adventure that requires different skill sets and focus.

I also love helping out with marketing and technical problems, so if you can’t figure out why your computer is acting the way it is or if you’re not sure whether or not it’s a good time to send that postcard, please shoot me an email and we can take a look at it together.


The following skills are not the extent of my, well, skills. I didn’t include the details of my computer or client relations expertise. Suffice it to say, I have a well-rounded business base.
