Introduction: I have an imaginative and impressive range with regard to style and output. I am (truly) equally comfortable and competent designing a brochure for a corporate client as I am creating whimsically cartoonish characters for a children's animation property. I love the never-ending variety! And I get to put my imagination to the test every day. The diversity of clients and projects mingled with my passion for following the creative impulse down uncharted paths yields some really eye-catching and unique products.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My normal hourly rate is $50/hr. My rate is $65/hr if the job is a quick turnaround (client needs finished product in 1-5 days). However, if the project is so enormous in scope that hourly pricing becomes cost-prohibitive for a client's budget, I am willing to do a flat rate that is commensurate with the work and satisfies the customer's budgetary constraints. Let's have a conversation about it!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Absolutely. For me, the learning is ongoing because tastes, styles, and technology are always evolving and changing. So I'm always doing something to stay in step, whether it's a painting and illustration techniques class to keep my drawing skills sharp, stocking up on the latest design books, or learning new animation software. I want to have as diverse an array of skills at my disposal as possible, so learning and continuing to educate myself is of paramount importance.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I came into it almost as a matter of course. I've been drawing and painting since I was two years old. In grade school, a friend's mom asked me to draw some cartoon illustrations for an educational newsletter her company was printing to ship to schools statewide and I got paid $200 for the job. That was the first time I realized that doing something I loved and enjoyed so much could also be a job. Ever since then it seems I've always had requests like that. And the world is full of people who need a little illustration or design help, so I have always just thought of myself as someone who's able to help people out when they need artwork or something designed.
