Background

I started with a passion for design in architecture. Then I valued the creativity of advertising and marketing and got into graphic design. Slowly I moved into user experience, because design is more than just making things look pretty, it's about making an experience. Now my passion lies in helping create a technology enhanced virtual learning experience for children and adults of all ages.

Diversity

The diversity of my graphic design experience comes from in-house marketing communication departments and advertising agencies. Living and working in Chicago, IL and now Milwaukee, Wisconsin, I am a senior art director, photographer, user experience designer, instructional designer and general design guru.

Design Skills

I am a superior designer with a broad skill-set—I have education and experience in everything from print and web design, photography, multimedia and print processes, billboards, outdoor displays, trade show exhibits, direct mail, magazines, instructional materials, you name it, I've desgined it. I've even designed architecture.

I have expert skills in the Adobe Creative Suite products including InDesign CC, Photoshop CC, Illustrator CC, and Bridge CC. Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Audition, and Adobe Captivate are also in my skills bag. I also work in Adobe Acrobat Pro and Microsoft Office. I prefer Mac but know how to use a PC.
