Left-handed, right-brained, a design professional for over a quarter century.

Now the sole proprietor of my own firm, consolidating a creative vision honed over a long career. Print, web and corporate identity services—all that and more for clients across a wide spectrum of industries.

That means you’ll be seen—and more importantly, listened to. I promise the very highest standards of attention and creative focus. I offer top-notch creativity and flexibility without the hassle of dealing with big agencies. Oh, I’ve done my agency time, but these days, the real value for the customer is bringing together my skills and experience with the expertise of other professionals in the community, whether they are copywriters, programmers, printers or illustrators.
