  • Creativity and Design: Art has always been a passion of mine. As a child, I was constantly carrying around a pencil and paper, asking people to “give me something to draw.” Now, my creative energies are being challenged to look at things in different ways — to find creative solutions that work for all different kinds of clients and audiences.
  • Communication and Collaboration: An open dialogue can only benefit everyone and the best ideas often are discovered with others.
  • Organization: A well-organized computer filing system and clearly labeled, clean design files make me happy.
