I have 30+ years of communication design experience. I have held design leadership positions within the industry from advertising and design agencies to large corporations. My diverse career has encompassed clients from healthcare, environment and education to manufacturing and technology. Clients include: The Children’s Hospital, IBM and Western Union to The Colorado Health Foundation, Jefferson County (CO), Centura, HealthOne, National Jewish and CU Denver.
I am well-versed in all aspects of design and advertising from collateral development to signage systems — I am perhaps best known for my work in the branding realm (Conservation Colorado, Healthier Colorado, The Colorado Trail Foundation) and annual report design (The Children’s Hospital, HealthOne, FirstData).
I began my career designing magazines and books for a ‘little’ publishing company — Meredith Corp. (Better Homes & Gardens). My publication design efforts continue most recently with the design and production of Health Elevations for The Colorado Health Foundation and the Metro State University Alumni magazine Alumni. Throughout my career I have been the recipient of countless local and national graphic design awards and my work has been featured in several industry publications.
I received a BFA from Colorado State University where I continue to serve as an adjunct professor. I have taught design, branding and packaging at Regis University and Front Range Community College (where I am the Multimedia Graphic Design Program Director). Additionally, I serve on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Trail Foundation and The Creative Council for the City of Louisville (CO), where I head the task force for branding and public art.
