Visual storytelling. Branding. Environmental design. Identity. I understand how content and design work together to solve a communications challenge. As a leader, I am recognized for the ability to see communications and operational issues from multiple perspectives in order to pursue the best solution.
My experience is broad--creative director at Drake University; principal of my own business, New Yardstick Strategic Design, and thus wearer of many hats; in-house design manager at USG, a heavy in the building materials industry; as well as an instructor at The School of the Art Institute, St. Xavier and Notre Dame.
Photography is my form of personal expression and I love rehabbing old homes and furniture. I am a maker/fixer.
