Seamlessly managing the conception and production of stylish, high-quality publications that drive education, trumpeting truth as well as beauty, is the key to my success as a senior design director and production specialist. My career history spans the arenas of fine-art publishing, higher education, and institutional branding, with proven expertise in directing the comprehensive design and meticulous labor needed to promote the outreach of an institutional mission to a wide readership. I have a track record of success in relationship management with cross-functional teams and vendors across numerous time zones and take great pride in my ability to support the deadline-driven production of creative deliverables within high-profile environments.

With my combination of design acumen, substantial knowledge of the printing world both national and internationally, a keen eye for color management, on-press drawdowns, and lifelong passion for and involvement with the visual arts, I offer a range of design and production abilities that can be optimally channeled to create engaging and beautiful publications for any institution.
