I have many years of experience providing creative, effective, visual communication in advertising design and internet development. My goal has always been to create only the best design for each individual client, setting them apart from the competition; getting the right message told to their target market, resulting in the best possible ROI.
And, when I get the chance, I really enjoy taking pictures of my everyday travels. My camera has a way of taking me
to some great places. I never leave home without both my cameras; my iPhone and Nikon.
