My passion for art started early. As a small child my crayons, felt pens and paper went everywhere I went! This was the foundation for my future education.
I started my career in graphic design in the 7th grade when I won an award for a student designed advertisement for the local newspaper. In high school, the love of design motivated me to obtain an ROP Graphic Design certification and also a prominent internship at a print shop in Nevada City, California. This internship led to a job in their pre-press and on-demand digital printing department where I spent several years learning the ins and outs of print production.
I received my Bachelors in Graphic Design from Sacramento State University in 2006. I was asked to join a small, but established, design firm in Sacramento, California. There I worked for a variety of clients producing website design, posters, marketing materials, and numerous publications. I've also taken on various non-profit freelance jobs. I enjoy working with people; and I feel that is where my design strength lies. I am a great listener and try to integrate good creative design with a client's needs while providing an enjoyable experience.
A partial list of clients I've worked with include:
- FedEx Corporate
- International Paper
- Hampton Inn and Suites
- Homewood Suites
- Smith & Nephew
- K2 Sports
- Girl Scouts Heart of Central California
- California Society of Enrolled Agents
- California Mortgage Bankers Association
- California Science Teachers Association
- Sacred City Derby Girls
All of us are more than our job title describes, just as most of us have more skills than a job title could ever portray. In our lives we wear many hats. I love to create. I love mocking up designs before showing a client. I get giddy when I see a finished piece of any kind. So much love goes into everything we create, and I think that is why design is so powerful.
