I aim for each Press Day (or Launch Day) to be the best day. 
With 15 years as a graphic designer in advertising and publishing, it is uniquely satisfying to hold the book in your hands. 
As a Production Artist and Graphic Designer at Encore Media Group, I managed over 180 print projects from page count to press day, and built new templates to accommodate complex magazine-style documents, while meeting both brand specifications and internal technical requirements.

One such ongoing project was for the program the Seattle Symphony distributed at every performance–I laid out the entire publication and created original page designs for the monthly featured article, and managed client relationships.

I got to manage and produce the 272-page Seattle International Film Festival commemorative catalog. Ushering this book through six rounds of handwritten edits was made easier by using a data-merge to collate the discrete sets of logos at the bottom of each film's listing. Accurate and efficient!

In laying out these programs for recurring clients, I was able to exploit my creativity and typographical skill to design dense dramaturgical infographics like these three examples from ACT Theatre in Seattle.

As a freelance designer I have produced newspapers and posters for various local organizations. Pictured here are a large scale poster and smaller flier for an event co-sponsored by the Transit Riders Union.

I've also made brochures, picture books, novels, and logos.
In nearly 10 years as a production artist for newspapers and magazines, I have made hundreds of display ads, large and small, for local businesses and campaigns. 

Here are two examples of smaller ads, shown on a real page I made for the November 2019 Seattle Symphony program.

And here is a full-page, text-heavy ad for the Bellevue College course catalog.
