What I offer

Typographic Branding

Get noticed and grow your audience with a lively, custom-crafted typographic identity. I develop impactful typographic logos that liberate your brand's unique expression, help you stand out in your field, connect to new audiences, and address what your audience cares about.

Polished Reports and Documents

Get your audience to take your work seriously with clean, professional looking reports and publications. I distill large amounts of text, data, and images into concise pages that are easy on the eyes and fun to read; allow readers to focus on the content; and eliminate confusion and boredom. I make great presentations in Keynote and Powerpoint too.

Neon Sign Design

Nothing matches neon’s beauty and longevity, and choosing neon shows that you’re serious about your business and respect your neighbors. Get attention and get people in the door with letters that exude life, character, and beauty.
