With a BFA from Syracuse University in Communication Design, and a MFA from the University of the Arts, I have 20 years of solid advertising + graphic design industry experience and have worked with clients on projects of all shapes + sizes, from small non-profits to large Fortune 500 companies. Previously I have worked in New York City – at a large ad agency, a boutique design firm, and in-house at Jim Henson Productions, as well as in Boston – at an award-winning kids design firm and at a small advertising agency. In 2001, I moved to Philadelphia and started my freelance art and design company. I have worked as a design contractor and freelancer, and in the summer of 2017, I started working in-house as the senior designer at The Franklin Institute. I currently design and manage the graphic design team, which exists under the Marketing department. I still take on freelance projects so please reach out if you have an upcoming design project you would like to discuss.
I love to work one-on-one with clients to get them exactly what they need. I believe design is about communication first and problem solving. Asking questions upfront and starting with a pencil and some paper helps get to the solution quicker. Then I like to give it some style and (project appropriate) creative “oomph”. Shown above are some of my favorite recent design projects. If you can’t tell… branding, brochures and invitations are my jam – but i’m pretty open to anything!
