I specialize in communication design. Art direction with a purpose. Love headlines and copy. My career has spanned many industries such as advertising, medical, pharma, direct response, entertainment, fashion and others. I embrace new industries and markets and look forward to my next adventure. As of 2017, I live with my family in Ontario, California.
I am currently working as a freelance Designer/Art Director on everything from print to digital, ads, and banners. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Art Center College of Design. Before Art Center, I worked as a Lead Designer at The Walt Disney Internet Group. I have also worked in a fantastic advertising agency, Team One in El Segundo and a leading pharma ad agency, Ignite Health in Irvine. My freelance clients include Panasonic Aviation Corporation, bobi Clothing, True Grit clothing, Mododoc clothing, POV Enertainment Design, Chase Design (Margo Chase), Lorac Cosmetics, UCLA producing animated teaching aids, MGM producing a Pink Panther Flash game, more Disney Online games, and others.
I was born and raised in Los Angeles and have had the fortune to explore lava tubes in the Australian Outback, snorkel in the coral reefs of Fiji, put on a wetsuit and float in a Brazilian Amazonian river, be awed by the majestic and mighty Iguazú Falls of Argentina and test my bravery in a real mummy museum in Mexico.
In no particular order, I enjoy art, animation, design of all kinds, music, comedy, spending time with my family, dining out, health and fitness, the human brain and mind, meditation/brain waves/sleep science, and my quest to becoming the most awesome version of myself possible. My other creative hobbies are producing music and experimental audio. I love sound, sfx, percussion, noise makers, and I’m a sucker for bongos and hand drumming.
