My career as a designer began with free-lance projects, and I continue to enjoy creating things for friends, family and clients. Among the projects I've enjoyed most are a series of holiday greeting cards, a series of illustrated ads, t-shirts, websites, mobile apps and logos. My sweet spot is where creativity and problem-solving meet to face a good challenge.

My journey as a creative professional began in the world of publishing, where I worked my way up through the ranks from proofreader to managing editor. I learned a lot about concept development and project management at A Beka, in addition to the experience I gained as a writer. In the end, however, I realized that it was the design of the publications which interested me most, spurring me to change careers and pursue the one I have today.

Tell me about yourself. I love to talk shop with other designers and creators.
