I launched +DESIGN, a full-service design company, that provides the highest level of professional and personal service. Our goal is to exceed your expectations for design, cost effectiveness, timeliness, and service. We want to accomplish these goals while at the same time building the trusting relationships and accountability that breed success for all of us. As principal of +DESIGN, I bring over 20 years of design consultant experience including strong project management and communication skills that ensure project outcomes match client needs. I thrive on challenging opportunities within dynamic organizations where my extensive diverse background can be leveraged to manage projects, be a design lead, conduct brainstorming sessions, implement user-centered design methodologies and cultivate innovation within development teams, contributing to the success and overall strategic goals of organizations. I take a comprehensive approach in meeting the varied needs of our clients. The expertise of +DESIGN and our strategic partners includes everything from research, design, engineering, prototyping and supplier sourcing, to brand development, packaging, marketing communications and web design.
