I direct, produce, and oversee the visual communications aspects of most EESC and OSU Extension materials. This includes graphic design (print, web, video animation), illustration, and OSU and OSU Extension brand application.

My career includes 18 years of experience serving as a graphic designer, art director, and illustrator for a broad range of private sector companies, the U.S. Air Force, and OSU. In 2003, I was honored at the Pentagon with the MILGRAPH (Military Graphic Artist of the Year) award; my work was judged against entries in a wide array of visual communication disciplines by artists and designers serving worldwide in all branches of the U.S. military.
