Biography

After graduation from Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts, I began my career in 1997 working in Boston for Interactive Factory, my title was Production & Integration Designer. I was one of five core team members hired onto the LEGO® Mindstorms project and its later released, expansion sets. We also worked in conjunction with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to develop the educational version of Mindstorms. Soon after, LEGO and FIRST joined forces to launch a junior robotics program with 200 teams in the pilot. I am proud to have been a part of the original LEGO robotics team.

In 1999, I moved to Portland, OR and I began working as an Interactive Production Designer for Via Training, who was at that time, 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 then began working as a print and web designer for ComCoach Marketing & Design. I produced a wide range of materials: logo & stationery packages, brochures, newspaper & magazine ads, websites, and trade show graphics.

For the past 16+ 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 spare time, I enjoy being outdoors, gardening, adventure sports and soaking up the Cali/Baja lifestyle.
