I’m a designer and an art director based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Growing up, I loved to draw, collect beautiful objects and make things with found materials. My father was an engineer and woodworker, and my mother was a teacher. From both my parents I inherited passions for creativity, craftsmanship and communication.
These passions carried me through San Jose State University, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design, and several years working for design firms and in-house corporate creative teams. After that, I started my own design practice, and for the past fifteen years, I’ve been designing identities, collateral, packaging, environments, signage and websites for retail, health & wellness, technology and non-profit companies.
I specialize in using clever and thoughtfully crafted ideas, visuals and words to connect my clients with their audiences. My design services include start-to-finish creative execution:
• Initial concept
• Comp and prototype construction
• Photoshoot direction
• Mechanical construction
I also specialize in art direction as well as brand creation, development and extension.
