With my perspective as both designer and creative director, my focus has always been to deliver an experience that moves the bar beyond client expectations. Utilizing a broad range of skills refined by working with a variety of top agencies and A-list clients over the past 12 years, I’ve provided solutions that ring true to brand managers, alleviating stress for event producers, saved money for clients, and excited audiences and end users.  From permanent exhibits, to trade show booths large and small, to month long press events and product launches, I’ve handled the jobs on time and on budget (or close to it).
