How Can I Help You?

I have always been a bit of a Renaissance woman. When I find something interesting, I pursue it in great detail. As a child, I spent hours in the library soaking up text and imagery about one topic at a time and then applying my knowledge at school and home with projects.

Interest in Egyptology and archaeology as a sixth grade student led me to learn to read and write hieroglyphics. That led me to learn Japanese, which was a very uncommon choice for a middle school student, but it made perfect sense to me.

I love a clean slate – a blank sheet of paper, an empty sketchbook, a new HTML document. Each of these represents the start of something new. It could be a great success or a stepping stone to something else, but it is always important and exciting.

Visual communication has always been an interest of mine whether in writing, drawing, graphic designs, or photography. Of course, I started with paper and pen the way of design before the era of Photoshop.

My work today is in branding, user experience, web development, and graphic design. I don’t claim to be an expert in all of these fields, but I have learned a great deal. My studies at Indiana University revolved around music, fine arts, design, and communications. So how can I help you now?

One of my favorite processes is idea generation. If you have the kernel of an idea for a business, I can sit with you to develop the strategy, branding (logo), web site, and social components. When you are my client, I am fully invested.

If the project doesn’t capture my attention or I know I’m not the best for the job, I am honest enough to tell you and help find the right person. Honesty is often absent and I would like to change that, even if it just starts with me.

I would love the opportunity to hear your idea and brainstorm together.
