I received an AAS degree in 2000 from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Display & Exhibit Design in Manhattan, NY. A few years later, I returned to school and received a BFA in Graphic Design from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro. My college years were all about exploring art (mostly photography) and design. Prior to that, I spent several years working in 1-hour photo labs and as a retail & corporate level visual merchandiser. I have also worked in the publishing field as a graphic designer and photo stylist.
Combining 15 years as a brand identity/graphic designer and 25+ years in various creative and retail roles, I am well versed in strategic thinking, best design practices, visual aesthetic/display design, and the ability to look at the bigger picture, resulting in an effective brand experience no matter what industry. My love for creativity and customer/client experience often overlaps allowing me to pursue many avenues as opportunities arise. Having experience in many industries and creative mediums allows for a broader view and varying perspectives no matter what type of project I am working on.
