I am an art director, freelance graphic artist, wrap designer, iPad sketcher, paper lover,
idea maker, joy seeker, tennis attempter, coffee drinker and donut eater.
I am an artist with 25+ years experience concepting and designing for advertising campaigns and corporate brands. As a leader, I have 7+ years of art directing and senior design with in-house teams using a mix of creativity, business strategy, process and research to create new, fun and clean work that solves problems.
I am currently the Art Director at The University of Texas at Tyler, where I work with a team to develop university branding, build brand awareness and support university initiatives including student recruitment and retention.
I also design for regional businesses, creating a variety of deliverables from corporate identity systems to customized vehicle wraps. Clients include Habitat for Humanity, Trinity Mother Frances Hospital, American Heart Association, Tyler Wrap Company, Exxon Chemical, Minute Magazine, and North Louisiana and Webster Parish Convention & Visitors Bureau.
I enjoy the process of coming up with fresh ideas and strive hard to meet deadlines. I take joy in seeing my work to the end and how it impacts my clients and meets their needs.
