Background and Training
I began my career working for various engineers and architects. I drew construction, landscape, plumbing, HVAC, and electical plans. Desiring to do something different, I joined the CU Foundation and worked in fundraising for ten years, most of it spent in Engineering Development. But, I really missed being creative. This started me down a path of exploring graphic design and I realized I had both an innate sense for good design and a passion for the profession. I became skilled in multimedia software, mainly Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Web Design. I then began to freelance in graphic design for various clients. I started my own business in 2005 which eventually became Neo-Design Studios.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Design from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Certificate in Graphic Design from Front Range Community College. Recently I’ve been exploring watercolor painting and those will be coming to this website soon.
