I'm a polite Jersey Girl with a sacrificial, New York work ethic. I'm very excited (and humbled) to celebrate 20 years of graphic design and marketing experience.
It all began in 1998 when I started designing flyers for local bars and clubs. I sucked. I didn't know what I was doing. I was just a year from graduating college and I didn't know what I wanted to do. All I knew was I wanted to work in music. I didn't think my skills would benefit me much. However I took an internship in New York in 1999 that changed everything. I started designing flyers for established venues and popular artists in the city. Over the years I not only designed flyers and posters, but album covers, advertising campaigns, branding, and so much more. I made close friends and got to work with artists I admired. I have worked with event planners, small businesses and major headliners (Bonnarroo, Questlove; The ROOTS/Jimmy Falon, Jean Grae, Mr. Len, Pat Van Dyke, and many more). My mission is to make an outstanding impact; tailoring everything to complement each client’s own objective and character. I'm old, but I keep up with trends and I honestly think SNL's "Papyrus" skit was made with me in mind.
I haven't updated my website in about 5 years. I appreciate your patience while I make daily updates. I moved from the NJ/NYC tri-state area in 2012 to Savannah, GA. Between the recession, the music industry taking a tumble, and my mother recovering from Breast Cancer, I needed to leave New Jersey. Not only to help mom, but to help myself get back on track. I've spent that time working for publications and design firms in the area, as well as freelancing. Just as I was getting on my feet, in 2015, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer. After 12 rounds of chemotherapy, rocking an ostomy for a year, 5 blood transfusions, and 3 surgeries, I am happy to say I've overcome the disease. Once I was healed, I started to dive back into my work. Being creative is the only thing that makes sense.
20 years later, I'm still asked to help with everything from start-ups and small business ventures to Grammy Award winning musicians. I'm so incredibly honored to be able to contribute what I can to someones dream. I'm always happy to help. If you like what you see, send me a friendly message.
Oh... and my dream is to work at Third Man Records. Put in a good word for me!
