    Hi there. I've been a professional Graphic Designer for almost 17 years and I love what I do. Although I specialize in large format graphics (signage, banners, tradeshow graphics, vehicle wraps, etc.) I have designed everything from a small business card to huge banners hanging on the sides of buildings. I have years of experience dealing with and designing for nationally known corporations, many centering around tourism and attractions since I do live in the #1 tourist destination in America - Orlando, Florida. In addition to being a print design expert, I am currently going back to school for Web and Interactive Design because I decided that this internet thing is catching on and here to stay. I excel at Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Indesign, sign design software and I can use Corel Draw if forced to.

I am an organized and well-rounded individual that will give you quality designs that fit your business. Whatever your design need is I can work with you.

While earning my bachelor’s degree at Washington State University, I expanded my design horizons by studying Renaissance art history and graphic illustration at Florence University of the Arts in Florence, Italy.
