As a freelance graphic designer for 17 years, I’ve had extensive experience with a variety of clients – from non-profit, medical and mortgage to the performing arts and retail. There’s something to learn from each job. Quick turn arounds, late nights, and living with my laptop strapped to my hip is all part of the ongoing excitement of being a freelancer. It also lets my clients know I’m always available and will work diligently until the project is complete. Deadlines won’t be missed and communication will be flowing.

Having worked on both sides of design projects (project management and graphic design), I understand how vital it is to have excellent communication and contact. There’s nothing worse than delayed or unreturned phone calls, texts and emails. You’ll never use the dreaded “she’s MIA” words with me.

My tools for success: Chai Latte, laptop, iPhone, wifi, Pandora.
