Background

Summary

My career objective is to succeed in any position as a design professional and ensure the images and/or media match the message to achieve the desired effect while continuing to develop, learn and implement new skills. I have over 30 years experience in the graphic arts field ranging from print-work, advertising and packaging design; to logo creation, brand development, marketing, web design and social media utilizing the latest software and technologies. Since then, I have translated those 30 years of experience into designing, fabricating and installing custom furniture for the hospitality industry. By transferring my graphic arts skills, I was able to begin reinventing spaces instead of images. I have been designing everything from tableware and custom serve ware to hotel renovations complete with custom furnishings and design in addition to website maintenance. I am very creative, innovative and a highly motivated worker. I enjoy working alone, or as part of a team. I learned how to delegate authority by my experience in the USMC. Please feel free to contact me should you have need of my services.
