BACKGROUND INFO: Employed in the communications design field since graduating Pratt Institute, I specialize in marketing, identity branding, and the presentation of information – via various media such as posters, charts and graphs, brochures, print ads, Powerpoint presentations, books and web sites. I have also worked as a copywriter, art director, studio manager, TV commercial director, musician, publicist and rock journalist.
In the early 1980s while working for the Genigraphics Corporation (a division of GE) I helped create the Genigraphics Reference Guide, the world's first digital clip art library. I later worked for Microsoft as part of the team that created the first Microsoft Clip Art Library and on the development of Powerpoint and Microsoft Office. Many of my original drawings have been used around the world for decades as part of Microsoft Office. (Click here for more on Genigraphics and Powerpoint).
Following Genigraphics and Microsoft, I spent 15 years at two Young & Rubicam companies; as a studio manager (Burson-Marsteller) and creative director (Cohn & Wolfe) - where I worked on numerous public relations and advertising campaigns for both Fortune 500 companies and not-for-profit organizations.
Since 2003 I have been self-employed as a consultant and graphic designer. My most recent freelance clients include a top sports marketing company, communications firms, a legal consulting firm, e-commerce and PR agencies, advertising, television networks, design studios, and non-profit associations.
I have used Macintosh computers since 1989. I provide tech support for all aspects of their operation, both hardware and software, with clients in both the arts and business worlds.
