About 

Since 1992 I have been translating client input and market research into customer-centric, on-brand experiences that produced positive results for each client I have worked with. 

My design process for creating memorable environments involves keen listening skills to discover client stories, the use of free-association thinking to solve problems, and employing effective trends and technology that engages the audience and leaves a lasting impression.  I am passionate about the challenge of creating the best solution to the design "puzzle", and continue to find new ways to innovate.

I am an award-winning designer who has worked on large trade show programs, and experiential marketing environments at many of the leading companies in the industry.  My flexibility in working independently, in group settings, or in directing designers on multiple concepts has proven to be one of my assets.  My project responsibilities have involved all phases of design including the client input meeting, developing a design strategy, brainstorming & conceptual thinking, rough sketching & design development, material selection, computer modeling & rendering, presenting, and consulting with manufacturing throughout all stages of construction.
