The two campaigns featured in my portfolio are partner campaigns for the Dewey Decimal Classification System. They ran concurrently, but for different target audiences. The Dot marks the spot campaign was designed for children in school and public libraries, while the It’s a big world, we’ve organized it campaign was aimed at public librarians. See more.
Many of the diagrams in this portfolio aim to reduce complex ideas to their simplest form. And content dictates format. I often create simple diagrams in the native program where the image will ultimately appear like Powerpoint or inDesign to keep the graphic editable for the end user. See more.
I create fine art pieces using a variety of media, primarily oil paints and pastels. I enjoy working big and like to use vibrant colors and interesting textures. My most current works are inspired by the ink patterns left behind on the back of commercial printing plates. And lately, I’ve been interested in simplicity and innocence reflected through my daughter’s artistic expression as well as drawings by primitive peoples. See more.
I’ve designed a number of publications for email delivery using html and hot-linked graphics. Linking the grapics keeps the message size small to avoid jamming the recipient’s email server. I created html templates in Dreamweaver and trained editorial staff how to use them so that the publications could be maintained without additional help. See more.
I’ve created numerous displays for coporate headquarters at OCLC and Nationwide Retirement Solutions. These displays featured 3-D constructs both free-standing and mounted, vinyl wall covering and lettering, banners, posters, frosted glass and framed artwork. These displays help define the brand and provide a sense of ownership for associates and visiting clients. See more.
This illustration, “the ultimate search engine” was created in the early days of the internet. The client decided that their product wasn’t exactly a search engine, but rather a reference database, so the illustration died on the launch pad. Other illustrations in this porfolio were created using Photoshop, Bryce, Poser, Painter and CorelDraw. See more.
This category features video, Flash and Director animations. Most of these examples were designed to be delivered by a live speaker, so the audio piece of the story is not included. Additionally, most of these samples were not originally designed to be delivered via the internet, so download times will probably be longer than you’re used to. Please be patient as they load.

This section of my portfolio has a few sample Powerpoint files. They show how to work within a template, maintain legibily and accentuate what the speaker is saying instead of listing it onscreen. Most are excerpts from larger presentations. This one about OCLC combines Flash with Powerpoint. See more.
The print design category has a little bit of everything print from collateral to direct mail to publications. Some items were designed in Quark, but most were designed using inDesign. See more.
The POD system for Nationwide Retirement Solutions allows sales associates to search or browse for marketing pieces, personalize them with meeting dates, photos or contact information, order and ship directly to a client via the company intranet. I helped design, administer and maintain the site. See sample pieces.
