Graphic Design
I have been producing graphic design for 15+ years and have learned several programs including Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, PageMaker, Google Sketchup, QuarkXpress and more. I created several designs while earning a B.A. in Mass Communication.
Marketing
I have over five years of marketing experience that includes strategies such as CMS Product Management, Press Release Writing, Email BLAST Campaigns, Direct Mail Campaigns, Advertising Design, Tradeshow Organization, and SEO Search Engine Optimization.
Content Creation
Content creation is one of the most challenging forms of design, as it requires several different design skills. I have created many types of content for digital signage including HD video, still and animated images, Flash movies, RSS feed programming, template creation, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
Branding
Branding is absolutely vital to the corporate identity, and coming up with a simple, memorable, and relevant design will provide the foundation for the brand. I have designed several logos for private companies along with a complementary look and feel for their other promotional materials.
Illustration
In my years of experience I have learned to conceptualize abstract ideas and create graphics that illustrate them. Sometimes seeing a diagram makes it much easier to understand an idea. I use tools such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Google Sketchup to create clear and effective diagrams.
I began creating web designs in 1994 using TextEdit on a Mac to create an online version of my university's newspaper. Since then I have been creating web pages for major corporations, private individuals, friends and myself. I am well versed in HTML, CSS, Javascript, Dreamweaver, Flash and MODx CMS.
Photography
I have been passionate about photography since I was a child. I love the process of capturing light to produce an image that tells a story and conveys emotion. In my undergraduate studies, I minored in photography, and I have published several photographs for which I have received awards.
Videography



My love for photography made for a smooth transition to video. At the university level I produced several commercials, PSA's and documentaries using Avid Pro Tools and Adobe AfterEffects. Many of my video endeavors are on YouTube, where I have garnered over a half million views.
Fine Art
I have always loved to draw. When I was at Black Hills State University, I had the opportunity to take a drawing class. I honed my skills and produced several works that have been exhibited in galleries and online portfolios. I enjoy creating photorealistic drawings and I have been commissioned to do so.
