As Design Manager, I am a creative, articulate design professional with over 20 years of successful experience, bringing strong results in design projects ranging from web-based deliverables and company branding to packaging, manufacturing, and printed materials. I have repeatedly demonstrated the ability to develop and implement cutting edge solutions that present top notch design work to any market. My over two decade career embraces extensive management and hands-on experience with proven effectiveness in planning and production of any design project. I have outstanding experience and ability to work with localization teams, vendors, and international partners.
I have been recognized for excellent staff and project management, organizational and negotiating skills, and the ability to consistently meet cost, project and timeline objectives. With consideration to a strong design and web-based background, skilled in team building from the bottom up, I have an exceptional ability to find and direct excellent artists.
