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 worked as a print and web designer for ComCoach Marketing & Design. I produced a wide range of materials including stationery packages, brochures, flyers, newspaper & magazine ads, websites, and trade show graphics.
I then moved into the position of Digital Print Manager for Hall Mailing & Fulfillment in August of 2005. My tasks at HMF included set-up and pre-flight of client files, printing of client files, paper purchasing and inventory tracking.
For the past ten+ years, I’ve been working as a freelance print & web designer out of Imperial Beach, CA. 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.
