Welcome to my online portfolio. Click up for a printable résumé and my contact information.

The projects reflected here are from 13 years as a one-stop design shop for Horton Emergency Vehicles as well as a few side projects.

My design foundation formed working on newspapers and grew while producing sales materials for Longaberger. It all came together with the addition of web design at Horton.
