Hi! I am a freelance GRAPHIC designer and art director with a focus that ranges from advertising, marketing and print design to creative strategy, branding and identity.
With over six years experience as a freelance graphic designer and in-house art director and designer, I have a proven track record of designing strategic, dynamic cross-channel marketing and advertising campaigns, well-developed and unique brand identities, and a diverse range of print and digital collateral for a broad range of industries - from corporate design to creating materials for unique small businesses and fun creative projects for individuals.
Most recently I worked as a contract art director for a leading local branding and marketing agency, prior to that  I led a high-performing in-house design team responsible for all in-store creative deliverables at an independent local market, cafè and event space while designing stories and solutions for compelling advertising and marketing campaigns, as well as overall brand management.
I am passionate about developing unique brand identities, creating robust marketing and advertising campaigns, and designing innovative print and digital visual solutions. When I'm not doing that I enjoy going to shows, practicing yoga, and hanging out with my cat, Taco (when he lets me.)
