Service Description

Most recently I was an in-house Art Director for a small company specializing in culinary-inspired innovation for national and international food and beverage brands. I was responsible for all art direction, design, production and workflow having to do with visuals and communications for the company.

I have extensive experience in print production having spent many of my earlier years working on catalogs and magazines.

Also a professional artist, much of my work begins from hand drawn sketches that lend my finished, digital files great fluidity, rhythm and vitality.
