I am an artist, educator, and graphic designer based in Denver, CO.

My process is highly collaborative, as a teacher, I've learned that telling students what to do never works, and is frankly super boring. Through conversation, I can guide my students towards the ideal means for their expression.

My design process follows that formula, finding the best means to get your ideas across through collaboration and my expert advice.

Speaking if expert advice, I will guide you away from using starbursts, making your logo bigger, and the use of Papyrus and/or Comic Sans. I think that's fair, don't you?

I have worked in commercial design for almost 20 years in a variety of industries including Automotive, General Contracting, and Pharmaceuticals where I created brand identities, websites, email blasts and print ads.

I have also taught Graphic Design and Digital Art at the University level for almost five, no six years. Damn, six years? Must mean I'm an expert, amiright?!

I also made a Beet into an adorable logo.
