I work as a graphic designer. I like to use my hybrid background of fine arts training and advanced graduate work in Colonial American history to inform my work. Once upon a time I taught university students the wonders of colonial American history.
My portfolio is a combination of all the things I do professionally or personally. A mix of print design, web design, watercolor, ink, graphite, charcoal, and so on. If it can be printed? I’ve designed it — brochures, posters, postcards, business cards, flyers, logos, catalogs, perfect bound books, magazines, pocket folders, tshirts, newsletters, bus tails, rail posters, billboards, large format display (hanging banners, retractable banners, wall display). I have also done a variety of web and social media graphics.
MAC fluent. Highly proficient in the Adobe Suite of software. Expert in print processes and workflow. Highly experienced in dealing with vendors. Experienced with WordPress, Joomla, and content management systems (CMS). Social Media savvy.
THE Black Hound? That would be Mitzi aka Tiko Fancy, retired racing greyhound who retired from this life in 2012 after an amazing 15 years of life. Appropriately for this household of American Revolutionary War enthusiasts, born on the 4th of July!
She was adopted from Greyhound Pets of America, Maryland. We picked her up at an exit on the Pennsylvania Turnpike straight off the dog hauler that was headed to Florida for the winter season. She had been one of the dogs left behind at Shoreline Star racing track in CT, after 4.5 years of running for her life. She was a charming hound, full of personality and joy.
