"I believe that everything has room for improvement – the small shift that brings balance. 

My design estheticreflects that belief – it’s simple and timeless. My flexibility in working with clients enables us to find balance together. The result is a visual message that feels comfortable to clients because it’s an elegant expression of their goals. I build brands that gain strength from longevity, not trendiness. Longevity is also a mark of my relationship with clients: 

Some of my very first are still with me more than 20 years later. 

At the School of Visual Concepts

I learned how to draw imperfect lines, color (and think) outside the box and form the letter g, with and without serifs. I learned that design has no rules, and I like that. 

I live wabi-sabi: I see beauty in the imperfect, incomplete and transient. I like earth tones, both dirty and bright. I can't sing, but I like to dance. I relax by cooking up a storm and then sharing 

it with appreciative friends + family. 

A Seattle native (I don't use an umbrella) and lifelong resident, I travel to see the world, but I always come back home to family and friends who make me feel grounded."
