Motivated and multi-dimensional creative consultant with a knack for developing visually engaging designs for a range of businesses. From charitable foundations to the largest pharmaceutical companies, I have used my skills to create materials supporting a variety of initiatives from product launches to internal corporate engagement programs.

The medium doesn’t matter! For me the fun is in finding the right design solution for the business objective—digital, print, large scale conference or pitch perfect presentations. I welcome each design challenge with a fresh eye and open mind.
