My goal is to help companies make a professional and unforgettable first impression, gain new clients and increase sales by developing marketing materials that are as unique as the products and services they sell.

The result is marketing materials that provide confidence, motivation and pride in your products enabling you to make successful communications with the people you were meant to serve.

How did I get here...?
I have been in and around graphic design for marketing since I was working my way through college. I've worked for the Lombardian newspaper during the summers designing and producing ads. Production was sticky business back in those days! To gain customer for my lawn-care business, I created a brochure and distributed it to landed a handful of customers to fill the time when I wasn't working at my other two summer jobs. While at school (SIU) I worked at the Student Center Graphics Department where we designed posters, brochures, displays, flyers and all sorts of marketing pieces for school events. This was great experience in customer relations, time-management and the creative process. Plus, I had a ton of fun along the way!!!

Now, I like to share this knowledge and experience with my design team and clients. This has peaked my interest in teaching and coaching.

Graphic design and sports have always been my two loves. I have been able to be involved in coaching many of the sports my children play. Football, baseball, soccer, basketball and a little bit of hockey. I'm blessed with two smart athletic kids.

> Focus and expertise in identity.
> Strong knowledge and experience in package design.
> Consistency and appropriate design: we really stress the need for consistency in the marketing materials we create and start with with a foundation built on a design that is appropriate to the target audience.
