A LITTLE ABOUT ME
As a New Hampshire native, the woods and White Mountains were
my backyard and my inspiration from a young age. My twin passions
became the sights and smells of the forest and magic dance of pen to paper.
A natural inclination for art and design drew me to Burlington, Vermont where
I earned my degree in Multi/Media and Graphic Design from Champlain college, and continued to live and work for 15 years. Graphic design for marketing and advertising have been my bread and butter for more than a decade, and my work with local design firms has introduced me to some of my favorite clients, from big national brands, to small and funky startups, or individuals that require a personal touch to help them find their brand identity.
Now back in the White Mountains, I am still serving clients' digital, print, packaging, and illustration needs from my home studio in the house I built.
I am a snowboarder, skateboarder, hiker, mountain biker, wood splitter,
creator, builder and a self-proclaimed coffee master.

HOW DOES PRICING WORK
My pricing is based on the scope of the job and I provide custom quotes for
each project. Specific deliverables and project phases will be outlined in the estimate with an average price range for each and a total cost for the finished project. There will be no unexpected cost or fees. Any additional requests that
are added during the design process will be flagged.
WHAT TO EXPECT IF YOUR A NEW CLIENT
Typically each new client can expect an initial discussion so that I can learn
more about the company or organization. It's important for me to learn as much
as possible about the existing brand or ideas and goals for the creation of the
work requested. This discussion will include an overview of the company,
a description of the project, the client’s expectations and desired outcome,
and specific deliverables. The initial discussion is followed by a custom quote
for the project. When each party has a clear understanding of goals and
expectations I get to work.
