I have been a Fulltime Freelance Graphic Designer, remotely for the last 4 years. I have 12+ years experience in Production Art, Visual Communications, Graphic Design and Brand Consulting in Nashville, TN and the Texas Panhandle. I have worked hand in hand with a variety of large and small businesses including The Country Music Hall of Fame, Weekly Newspapers, Monthly Magazines, and a couple of Billboard companies. In 2011, I relocated to Pampa, Tx, from the Nashville Area, to continue my strive for a design challenge, by moving to a small Texas town. My creativity is fueled by my love of typography, passion for print, and a love affair with design.
For the last 4 years, I have worked for 3 newspapers, producing and designing several columns, special sections, magazines, and print advertisements. Since the beginning of 2015, I have taken on other freelance work including Art Directing a magazine in Florida, Working remotely for a County Direct Mail Directory in Florida, working for 2 billboard companies, and other misc freelance work.
