I’m a Creative Director working for a publishing company in the southwest suburbs of Chicago. I have over 30 years of experience in graphic design. Born and raised in Chicago, I grew up loving art and design, pursuing this throughout my career.
My work involves heading up the creative direction of online projects from initial discovery sessions through standard based HTML5 and CSS. I have a keen eye for good composition and can build a balanced design which I then work up with measured detail, trying to make those extra touches to improve my work as often as possible.
Web standards are important to me, and like most modern web designers, I strive to have compliant, valid and semantic code behind my designs.
I enjoy other areas of design as well, I have completed various email marketing campaigns, and have undertaken a number of video production projects as well.
