My passion in life is creativity; my ambition in life is to share this creativity with those seeking it. For almost a decade, I have pursued this ambition through hard work, dedication and education. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication from Ohio Dominican University in the spring of 2002. During my senior year, I won several awards as an outstanding Visual Communications Major. While attending Ohio Dominican, my focus moved from traditional pencil and paper to the digital canvas of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. My fascination with Bauhaus artists (Herbert Bayer in particular), lead to my study of typography, color theory and photographic manipulation, which was the foundation for my senior thesis and inspires much of my design today.

Post graduation, my passion has been balanced between photography and the principals of design I embraced at Ohio Dominican. I love the challenge of figuring out how to relate a message to others using simply images and symbols, but this is not always the case as sometimes straight to the point is the best approach. Figuring out what works best for the task at hand is the most challenging part of design - that's why I'm so passionate about it.

I have over 16 years of professional experience as a graphic design specialist, including freelance work. I am proficient working in both Mac and PC platforms, with expert knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, Dreamweaver, Flash, Fireworks, QuarkXpress and all Microsoft Office applications.

I'm very happy with my full time gig, but I do welcome freelance opportunities. My objective is to continue seeking opportunities with those seeking ideas.
