I am one person changing the world.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, my mission is to champion the good guys. My speciality is design, strategy, and content-management for non-profits and social causes. I do and create everything from graphic design to branding, event posters to annual reports, websites to email campaigns, social media management to content writing.
If you’re wondering how I could possibly be good at so many different things, there are two things to know about me: I am organized and well-prepared, and I take my work seriously. You can count on me to meet a deadline at the 11th hour, you can count on me to diffuse a sticky situation with a client or to jump-start a dead project, you can count on me to make you look good. I can do so many different things, because other people have already entrusted me to do all sorts of things, and I have, successfully. In other words, this ain’t my first rodeo.
I’ve always been enamored with advertising. I was one of those teens who would tear out magazine ads and tape them to my bedroom wall. Hundreds of them. At the same time, I wasn’t even aware graphic design or advertising existed as a profession. Truthfully, I didn’t ever think much about any profession growing up. I studied English at college, but was too busy working in retail, in catering, in administration or at the factory trying to pay my bills to think much about a career. After a decade of different work experiences and one unsatisfying job after another, I decided to get serious about getting paid to do something I enjoy.
In 2008, I enrolled in the M.A. Publications program at the University of Baltimore. During and since then, I’ve embraced a visual style, studied design movements, refined my writing skills and put my knowledge into real-world practice. I was hired green at Groove Commerce and they taught me so many valuable things, and I was lucky to work with really great people. I rose through the ranks to become the Senior Designer and a valuable member of the core team. But eventually all good things come to an end, and I made my exit in 2012 on May Day. I had one more goal to pursue. I decided to get serious about using my skills for the benefit of others and the common good.
And that brings me to today and my current mission: To champion the good guys.
