Specializing in clean, focused design and smart, effective solutions

I’m a graphic designer, science illustrator, watercolorist, itinerant sketcher, and maker of many things. Creative energy comes from the heady rush of breaking roadblocks, and/or a good first flush Darjeeling.

My professional qualifications include a BFA in design from Chapman University and over 25 years of corporate/in-house and freelance experience as a graphic designer, production artist, workflow consultant, and illustrator. This includes over seven years of specialization in commercial real estate, as well as significant experience in finance/investing; party, toys, and scrapbooking; and advertising.

All this is backed up with a lifetime of practice in fine art: watercolor, drawing, photography, DIY art supplies, and more.
