Pittsburgh, PA, US



There are many approaches to graphic design, but for me there are always two constants:
     1. Form follows function.
     2. Typography is what speech looks like.
I have worked as a Multimedia and Graphic Designer for many notable companies such as Burt Hill, Mizrahi Inc., American Eagle, Informatics Studio and Thermo Fisher Scientific. My work has been recognized locally and nationally, including being featured in the HOW International. Following this letter is a copy of my resume outlining my experience and qualifications. My work can be viewed online at
If you would like to arrange an interview to further discuss a work opportunity or just talk and get some information, I can be reached via email at or by phone at (814) 657-0496. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to meeting with you.
