As a publication designer and art director, I create dynamic, market-specific publications for targeted demographics. My extensive experience with established titles, redesigns and launches enables me to conceptualize new projects as well as analyze existing products for improvement. From concept to first copy, I am dedicated to producing the best possible print publications and marketing products.
Always an arty child, I first discovered a talent for graphic design in high school making posters for plays and dances. My publication career took off in Miami, Florida working for a number of city, shelter and local and international business magazines.
Custom publishing brought me to Palm Springs, California, where I design specialty magazines and event programs for film festivals and sporting events. I have won numerous design and art direction awards over the years, including recently for my work on Healthy Living magazine for Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage.
When not being an arty adult, I plot my next beach adventure and pursue that perfect glass of pinot noir.
Previous projects include:
Healthy Living magazine for Eisenhower Medical Center
Healthcare Public Relations and Marketing Association:
Gold Award for magazines, 2011 Golden Advocate Awards
Bronze Award for magazines, 2014 Golden Advocate Awards
Winner, Best Program, 2007 Gold Driver Awards,
