In 1998 I graduated with a Bachelors of Art degree in Graphic Design. Upon graduation I joined Informatics Studio working my way up to my current position of Art Director.
For the past 11 years I have worked at Informatics Studio and have been involved with the development of both printed and electronic communications. Most recently, I was the Art Director, lead designer and, project manager for social marketing and educational programs aimed at Native American and other targeted communities. I developed the communication objectives for the programs as well as the overall branding, strategic marketing and design through technical implementation. My knowledge and understanding in integrating engaging design with effective strategic marketing has let do many successful comprehensive communication programs at Informatics Studio. This includes branding and strategic design, as well as marketing communications for clients that include the National Institutes of Health, National Cancer Institute, Clinical and Translational Science Institute (Schools of Health Sciences, University of Pittsburgh), US Department of Health and Human Services, National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Museum of the US Army, US Department of State, and the United Nations Development Programme, Highmark, PNC Bank, and The National Flag Foundation.
