Meet Our Talented Team!
I was in 7th grade when I learned about something that would forever change my life: Helvetica. Yes, Helvetica is responsible for a passion for typography that would last my entire career. The way letters are drawn, the hows and whys of ascenders and descenders, why and when to kern – all of it – have driven my lifelong fascination for type and design. After learning the basics at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, I freelanced for a bit, then put out my own shingle. The Type Gods have been exceedingly kind in that Graphicus Design has been chugging along like the Little Engine That Could for almost ten years now. Of course, none of it would be possible without a fantastic team to bring every project to life. My gratitude to them knows no bounds.
Graphic Designer, Website Designer
I love to write bios about myself. After receiving a BFA in illustration from Parsons School of Design, I went back to college and received an AAS in graphic and web design from WCCC. In my spare time, I like to play poker, chess, and tread a fine line between exercising and tasting new craft beers. I hope to one day prove tree gnomes exist and that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.
Some people build houses for a living; I build sentences. As a writer and editor, my job is to help clients tell their stories in a compelling and actionable way. I help them achieve this through creative website content, feature articles for internal portals and external trade magazines, speeches, PowerPoint content for meetings, annual reports, etc. I specialize in health care, animal health, consumer products, data management and supply chain management.
