I began my career in 1997 working in Boston, Massachusetts for Interactive Factory as a Production & Integration Designer. I was one of five core team members hired onto the LEGO Mindstorms project and its expansion sets. We also worked with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to develop the educational version of Mindstorms.
After moving to Portland, Oregon in 1999 I began working as an Interactive Production Designer for Via Training, contracted by Hewlett-Packard. I created static and Flash graphics for the HP InfoLab website. I also worked as the graphics integrator for HP’s LaserJet kiosk, placed in stores nationally.
Upon moving back to New Hampshire in 2001, I began working as a print and web designer for ComCoach Marketing & Design. I produced a wide range of materials, everything from stationery packages, brochures, flyers, newspaper & magazine ads, websites, to trade show graphics.
For the past 13+ years, I’ve been working as a freelance print & web designer out of Southern California. I have large and small clients that span between east and west coasts. Please take a look at a list of my Associates, here.
In my personal life, I enjoy being outdoors, adventure sports and soaking up the SoCal lifestyle.
