I am a multi-media graphic artist and creative team leader with over 18 years of experience innovating and implementing communications with purpose. I collaborate with clients to develop designs and brand strategies that deliver results.
What I love to do
Build powerful brands that sustain competitive advantage and revenue growth across non-profit and for-profit organizations.
Create attractive visuals combined with insightful content throughout print, web, app development, photography, illustration and beyond.
Drive successful marketing and branding initiatives such as e-commerce product sales, philanthropic campaigns and promotional events.
I am available now for freelance contracts and working fully remote from my home office in Portland, OR. I am currently employed by The Scripps Research Institute, Department of Marketing and Communications.
creative services to inspire passion, incite action and propel change
I rally creative teams around meeting project goals. I can find the talent that is perfect for completing the project objective and keep them motivated to produce their best work. Be it for executives, sales reps, product developers, or philanthropic directors, I am able to deliver visual media growth strategies that address the nuanced requirements specific to the client.
Is your brand just beginning or does it need help transitioning into a fresh look and feel? I can walk you through the brand creation process and help you identify your business’ competitive edge. I am equally thrilled to run with the torch and take your established brand to a new level of success. I will organize your media presentation and guide your team to a more unified visual identity that truly represents your strengths.
I am energized by working with a team to develop new campaign ideas. Materializing media goals, timeline and budget are a few of my strengths. I love the process and my focus is to take your campaign goals and bring them to life with meaningful graphics that make an impact.
Print is not dead. Clients or donors love an elegantly designed take-away piece like a magazine, brochure, postcard or booklet. There is a unique strength that I can bring to your story through a beautifully designed print piece. The tactile power of print will influence your readers and bolster your brand.
I live to find your target audience, empower them with ways to get involved and convert their interests into revenue. By studying response analytics, I build audience segmentation that ensures only the most relevant content is delivered. I create branded email templates that are easy for novice team members to use. I can help end any frustration you may have with email communications.
What started as an interest has grown into an integral part of my designs. I have experience shooting a range of different subjects from the sidelines of NCAA basketball games to in-studio portraiture and architecture, as well as, event photography.
Hosting events is an essential part of raising brand awareness. I offer a full-service approach to event promotion that includes: designing invitations and websites, targeting potential attendees through social media posts and developing easy-to-use RSVP/ticket sale interfaces. I create an overall look and feel to the event that can be carried through signage, sponsor solicitations, programs and stage design. I have extensive experience in collaborating with vendors in the fields of catering, equipment rental and audio/visual production.
