Professional Profile

I am a graphics professional with over 20 years experience in the print and creative technology industry. Managing full scale creative tech-stack implementations; including storage, creative automation, creative technology roadmapping, and enterprise font management strategy. With an extensive background in production design, prepress, color management, brand identity, and creative troubleshooting; I am passionate about asset management, working with pixels, and fixing them when they do not do what we expect of them!

I take pride in my ability to work well under high-stress situations and am a fast learner of new concepts. I am an excellent communicator, skilled listener, and love working in a creative and challenging environment!

In addition, I am also an avid and passionate landscape photographer who always wishes to find more time behind the lens.

Photographer // Kalamazoo, Michigan

Since as far back as I can remember, I have had a passion for the world of digital art. I also grew up in a family where my father was fascinated by the beauty of mountain landscapes! Somewhere along the way, those two worlds collided for me and I have dedicated my heart to travel, in search of finding dramatic natural landscapes to capture through the lens of digital photography. My hope is that I am able to present these images in an interesting and unique way.
