About me

I was raised in Nebraska and have lived in California since 1988. I received an M.F.A. in Graphic Design from Academy of Art University in San Francisco and a B.A. in Biology from the University of San Diego.


With 20 years of experience in advertising and graphic design, I specialize in identity design and branding. For six years I worked in San Francisco for ad agencies. After moving to Santa Monica, I worked as Art Director for a global lifestyle fitness company. Since 2006, I’ve built my own boutique design studio with clients in the food, hospitality, fitness, fashion, finance, and nonprofit industries.


My designs have included:  corporate logos, websites, catalogs, brochures, packaging, restaurant signage, menus, invitations and event posters. Past clients include:  Vivendi Universal, Mattel, IDG Books, Papyrus, Blue Plate Restaurant Group, Marmalade Cafe, and The Dolce Group.
