A motivated, experienced, self-starter with 20 years of creative, professional experience. Plays well with others, but equally comfortable in individual scenarios. Seeking opportunities to grow and expand upon current design skill-sets within graphic print and web-based environments.
My background is in illustration. But my interests and skills have grown and evolved and have taken me into the design world. The majority of my design career has been print-based, primarily in the publishing of magazines, books and most recently, game software packaging. As the design industry has changed, so have my interests and abilities to include web-based design.

As this company evolved within the casual gaming industry, so did the opportunities to grow creatively and technically. Both team and individual work scenarios were present. Each offered the chance to gain unparalleled knowledge in all aspects of design and production. Key capabilities and accomplishments are notably eye-popping package designs, game & web-site graphics, as well as support materials for the sales and marketing teams. An eventual transition to social media gaming provided learning opportunities within front-end development of interactive games via the creation of background scenery and web graphics.
