Creative | Inspiring | Graphic Design — Fast | Concise | Exact Production

Graphic designer and production artist with 30 + years of experience in the graphic arts. From print to digital to mobile and everything in between. Publishers to printers, design to marketing, banners to branding, brochures to billboards, packaging to mock ups, and a whole lot more. My varied and extensive experience combined with my fast and accurate skills are what my clients appreciate the most about me. So what's your idea and how can I help you make it come to life? Good chance I've done it before and if not…well then, let's talk. because I'm always eager for the next, new challenge.

Love what you do, and you'll do it well

Graphic Design

Design is what inspires. It's what communicates. Design will make you think, or make you think differently. Design can change the way you live. Design is all around us. It affects everything in your daily life. You just don't think about it. Design is Universal. It crossess borders and barriers and doesn't require language to work. Can design change the world? It already has and will
do so in the future.


It's a great design idea, but how do we get it to actually work? RGB? CMYK? Bleeds? Trim? Work & turn? Work & tumble? Offset? DTP? DPI? Dot gain? Spot colors? It can all be a bit confusing. You've got a great idea and a great look to go with it, but how do you get it to that next step? That's where I come in. 30+ years of production work dealing with this kind of stuff makes me sort of an expert.

Everything Else

They have a term in baseball for a player who can play many positions. He's called a Utility Infielder, though he may actually play outfield and catcher as well. That's how I describe myself when it comes to my role in the graphic arts. I've played a lot of graphics "positions" over the past 30+ years. This extensive and varied experience gives me an edge in whatever the project may be. Put me in coach,
I'm ready to play!

  • Graphic Design Specialist

    Graphic design is the process of visual communication, and problem-solving through the use of type, space, image and color.

    Graphic design often refers to both the process (designing) by which the communication is created and the products (designs) which are generated.

  • Production Specialist

    A Print Production Artist takes from a designer a "comp", and creates a mechanical — a complete digital file or combination of files that's problem-free when it goes out to the printer.
