I created ice cream sundaes at my first job and I still believe that the sprinkles and cherry count, but the carefully layered, towering 3 scoops, dripping with hot fudge and caramel are what make the big creation irresistible. For any design, details count, but the concept is critical. My experience is diversified in design, management and production in both studio and corporate environments. I've designed projects for a small graphic design studio, a major movie theater chain, an advertising firm, an art & framing retailer, an architecture firm and even a world-famous lingerie company. The variety of companies I've designed for has rewarded me with layers of inspiration for all the projects I create today.
