Branding & Identity
Commercial, Portrait & Travel
I am thrilled to offer clients to a wide variety of photography services.

I also keep busy with portrait photography including wedding, newborn, children, senior, and family photography. My goal is to give you an experience well worth your time, and provide you with all of the photography services you or your company needs to succeed.
Branding & Identity
Branding Collateral & Marketing Initiatives
As a graphic designer, I believe it is increasingly important for your company’s brand to stand out. My goal is to help companies of all sizes develop deeper brand strategies and engaging brand collateral. I manage all of the details of business brand development, while paying constant attention to your company’s overall marketing initiatives. I’m capable of designing business brands from the ground up, from product naming and unique logos to ongoing brand monitoring and post-launch marketing or advertising. I can increase the effectiveness of your existing brand by updating your current logo and branding strategy, both in-house and in the public eye. My brand planning begins with competitive research and analysis in order to make knowledgeable and productive branding decisions that help your company succeed. I strive to understand your market and competition as well as you do, so I can position your business brand at the forefront of your industry. I can produce successful promotional media, including digital and print collateral, that boost your brand visibility and market presence. My mission is to enhance your company brand, while staying true to your core business goals. I can help you to maintain a consistent look and feel to your brand message throughout all of your marketing platforms, and believe that a firm brand strategy and focused brand collateral pave the way to increased success.
Websites, Mobile/Tablet Devices & Applications
I believe that first impressions online matter more than ever. Engage your audience, increase sales, and make a lasting impression with a professional website designed and built specifically for your business and your customers. I plan, create and build beautiful websites on the latest technologies that help drive growth and improve visibility for businesses. However, it takes more than just a slick looking website to grow your business online successfully. I help business owners like you understand how visitors are using your website so you can make smarter business decisions in less time. I make sure to provide responsive web designs in order to give optimal viewing experiences across a wide range of devices, whether it be for smartphones or tablets. My goal is to give your website visitor a better user experience across all platforms and ultimately help bring success to your company.
Creative Concepts & Brainstorming Processes
In my opinion, creative thinking skills are one of the most important attributes to helping a business succeed. I help forward thinking organizations unleash their collective brilliance and achieve extraordinary results. My work, however, goes well beyond getting people out of the box, beyond brainstorming, and beyond thinking of new ideas. What I ultimately do is help my clients establish humane, inclusive, sustainable cultures of innovation – the kinds of environments that become fertile ground for the natural expression of creativity, collaboration, commitment, and uncommon success. I help to provide business owners with concepts of creativity and teach them how to use a range of techniques for generating ideas, analyzing problems, and working creatively in teams. I strive to help your company members realize how using creative techniques can break them out of their static, rational, and logical thinking, and delegate challenges to help them use new creative techniques during their day-to-day work routines. My mission is to help your company stand apart from the competition by using key concepts of creativity and the creative thinking process.
Designing with my heart
I let my heart lead my design decisions.

"You have to be interested in culture to design for it."
"The only important thing about design is how it relates to people."
"Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun."
Mary Lou Cook
"Every great design begins with an even better story."
"Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future."
Robert L. Peters
"To design something really well you have to get it. You have to really grok what it's all about. It takes a passionate commitment to thoroughly understand something - chew it up, not just quickly swallow it... A lot of people in our industry haven't had very diverse experiences. They don't have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions, without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better designs we will have."
"The life of a designer is a life of fight: fight against the ugliness."
"The real issue is not talent as an independent element, but talent in relationship to will, desire, and persistence. Talent without these things vanishes and even modest talent with those characteristics grows."
