I worked on perfecting my creative talents since childhood, winning a scholarship under the Carnegie Museum for fine art class at age 11.  Projects range from fine art paintings to graphic design, corporate identity packages, web design, print and web advertising, sign creation, software graphics design, slide presentations, animated graphics, photography retouching and a variety of printed promotional pieces makes me an ideal visual communicator.

I have over 20 years of experience working in corporate marketing as an art director, senior designer, web developer, and graphic designer in fields including software development, commercial real estate, health and fitness, and law.  Along with corporate work, I performed a variety of freelance marketing and art projects for the past 20 years. In these roles, I developed extensive experience in all phases of digital and print marketing materials.

I’ve been a recipient of numerous awards and recognitions, including Finalist for the John Barclay Scholarship, winner of the “Art with Heart” competition, Third Prize in the Annual Whitehall Arts Show.  Currently, have membership of various art clubs such as Pittsburgh Watercolor Society, Whitehall Arts and West Hills Art League, where I exhibit  fine artwork. I’ve earned an Associate of Visual Communications in Specialized Technology and Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, where I was recognized for perfect attendance and Dean’s List with High Honors.
