I’m a graphic designer with the talent and experience to create top-notch solutions for everyday design challenges. As a designer and illustrator I have the ability to strategically and successfully design work that “just makes sense.”
Not only do I have a strong understanding of color, typography and composition, but my work ethic and attention to detail is impeccable. I can multi-task like crazy, communicate effectively with clients and vendors and manage projects from start to finish.
As a designer and marketing coordinator, I develop and design customer specific marketing materials and white labels for 20+ distributors nationally. Coordinate with I.T., sales and management team to create proposals and presentations. Manage web-based marketing material. Manage and create e-mail marketing campaigns; both B2B and B2C. Maintain and design company website. Work effectively under tight deadlines in a fast-paced work environment.
from 2003 to 2014
Working my way up from Junior Designer to Creative Director/Production Manager I have increased my responsibilities exponentially. As the lead designer and project manager, I work closely with printers, editors, ad clients, writers, photographers, web developers and publishers to create engaging articles and visual appealing design to help grow the SDJJ. As Creative Director, my role has been to not only plan, organize, manage and design the magazine and it’s online presence, but to stay under budget and keeping up with the latest technology.
from 2006 to present day
Owner/Designer of freelancing company that caters to businesses that may not need or cannot afford to employ a designer on staff. I brand companies, design websites, print and online ads, logos, business cards, brochures, templates, write copy, etc. I want companies that wouldn’t normally be able to afford nice design, to have a competitive brand.
As a loyal employee of Print-O-Mat, in La Jolla, CA, I designed, prepped and set-up artwork for an in-house print shop in La Jolla. Created film for plates, invitations, city banners, logo design. I branded companies and created illustrations.
Hired right out of college in Louisiana for the weekly alternative press paper, I worked with a very talented creative team of six, early in my career. That team effort molded my career for the next 11 years. I still love the team aspect of getting everyone on board with an idea. It gets done much quicker and more efficient. I got to collaborate on covers and had my own section weekly to design. I was the only paginator and went to press checks at the printing plant weekly.
Bachelor oF Fine Arts in Graphic Design + Minor in english

I can help your company speak through visuals what you might not have time to say in text. I create beautiful, aesthetic and selling brands. Below are only a few of the services I provide. Feel free to contact me for more information and pricing. I consult for free firstname.lastname@example.org.
Working in the print industry for the last decade, I have ample knowledge of print set up, paper, color, price efficiency and anything you'd need to know about printing anything, I can help you.
Transitioning to web design was a no brainer for me. Web design gets your business out there with a feeling or mood that will want people to come back again and again.
I've illustrated characters, logos, scenery, story boards; only to name a few. Illustrations can help you stand out from your competitor. Ask me how.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
