27 years of Graphic Design and Marketing experience. I’ve worked in a number of fields and specialties, and love opportunities to expand on my knowledge and learn new things.

My recent work was 8 and a half years in Email Marketing and digital advertising design. I worked in ad creation and ESP development and have vast knowledge of email marketing on a number of different platforms. I’ve tested out and used just about every ESP out there, and have designed and tested sends for millions of emails.

I’ve worked for global companies as well as small advertising shops, and have thrived in all kinds of environments.
