about me

Since June of 2014, I have been the web graphic designer for Fresh Water Systems.

I update/design for online storefront and one manufacturing website using AspDotNetStorefront and WordPress. This includes all online marketing materials on the websites. I design/create email blasts and track them via SendGrid. I promote Fresh Water Systems in various formats of social media. I also design/update all marketing materials for the manufacturing division—from taking product shots to producing spec sheets and brochures. This also includes advertisements in trade publications.


Previously I was the Art Director for Converse College for 9 years.

As the “keeper of the brand;” I created the look-and-feel of Converse marketing and the continuity where it applied to the different departments at the college. Heavily involved in the relaunch of the college’s website, involved in the redesign of the college logo and the renaming/logo of the athletics team mascot. Admissions work consisted of all materials sent out: brochures, direct mail, postcards, advertisements, print banners and any other promotional materials. Working with the Alumnae department; I created/produced their magazine, event invitations and postcards. Solicitation and promoting events for Development with direct mail, postcards and presentations. Student Life provided a bit of fun by not having to conform to the brand with it promotion of events and concerts with posters, invitations, t-shirts and banners. Other “clients” within Converse included: School of the Arts, Petrie School of Music, President’s office and the Milliken Gallery.


Previous to that I was employed with VantagePoint. I was the Art Director in the New Media department for 7.5 years.

I was the interface designer for the client’s websites and new media projects. This also included basic HTML programming and flash. From time to time I also worked on training modules and anything relating to promote the new media (i.e. CD covers, etc.) While there I was part of the accounts who were awarded multiple BMA awards and awards from other organizations.


I look forward to hearing from you.
