I’m an experienced graphic designer with extensive knowledge of design and production. With over 15-years of experience in the greater metropolitan Washington DC area, I specialize in transforming ideas into reality. Doing business as Magnolia Design & Communication, I’ve produced all manner of marketing collateral, books, magazines, proposals, presentations, branding and identity.

Re-energized and refreshed from a creative sabbatical, I’m committed to applying my expertise–as an entrepreneurial freelance designer as well as an on-staff designer for both non-profit and for-profit companies–to my next creative endeavor. I’m well known for my creativity, flexibility and dedication to customer service and the community at large.

Specialties include Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat; production of newsletters, magazines, catalogs and books; print and web design; light coding; pre-press; photography; direct mail using MailChimp and Constant Contact; public speaking, creative consulting, educational training, art direction and leveraging social media.

I’ll be using my new website to highlight¬†my projects as well as subjects¬†of design that I find interesting. Cheers!
