My clients range from Fortune 100 companies to small businesses across many industries including pharma, education, automotive, retail, and financial.

In my free time you can find me reading, playing video, board, or tabletop role-playing games, writing urban fantasy, cooking delicious multicultural meals, or snuggling with one or more of my four cats.

Résumé

PowerPoint & Infographics Design

While PowerPoint specialists and graphic designers are easy to find, my combination of skills makes me invaluable to producers, art directors, and end clients. I've focused on making abstract concepts accessible and creating engaging presentations that don't look or feel like PowerPoint since 2004.

Complete template development, cleanup of existing decks to brand standards, and design for on-screen shows, visual aids, and printed documents. Advanced Photoshop work and image manipulation, including complex clipping paths, product and on-screen mockups, and even hilarious photo mashups.

On-Location Graphics Support and Backstage Tech

Producers and clients know me as a calming and competent presence for clients and crew. Fast and detail-oriented on-location graphics support for print and digital design needs. Passionate about best practices for graphics development, file management, and the impossible task of on-location version control. PowerPoint, Prezi, Keynote, PlaybackPro, various ARS configurations, speaker notes, and basic AV tech for small conference rooms to major event keynotes.

Digital and Print Design

Complete branding and identity packages, including B2B and B2C marketing collateral, press kits and annual reports, long-form books, and advertising. Digital design experience includes complete web marketing and remarketing campaigns, impactful social media identity and campaign graphics, e-publishing, and front-end web design for static and responsive email and websites.
