Originally from Michigan, now living in South Florida, I have worked in photography and graphic design for over a decade and I have worked in arts education for over 7 years. I have an MFA in Photography, an MFA in Graphic Design and a BA in Criminal Justice. My main areas of interest within graphic design are Art/Creative Direction, Corporate Branding and Advertising Design, and Packaging Design. Within photography I specialize in fine art architecture and self-portrait photography, though I have worked in many areas of commercial photography in the past. Past clients have included Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation; Florida Children's First; Movie Maker Magazine; Florida Media Market, among others. I am currently an active member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts and Professional Photographers of America.
