Art Director • Freelance • Asheville, NC and Los Angeles, CA • 2007-present
I currently design alumni development magazines and fund raising initiatives for Onslow Memorial Hospital in NC on a quarterly basis. I created marketing and development materials for several service lines of the University of Miami Health System based on my work done at Duke University Medical Center, where I designed and laid out publications and marketing material. I designed marketing brochures and rebranding for RHA Howell, a non-profit organization that provides for children with disabilities. I design key art, marketing materials, packaging and book covers for documentary producer Mark Spano Communications on a regular basis.

Art Director • Duke University Medical Center • Durham, NC • 1994-2006
The Office of Creative Services and Marketing Communications was an in-house advertising and design agency responsible for brand management and marketing communications for the Duke University Medical Center Health System, one of the nation’s top ten academic medical centers, including its three hospitals and many local affiliates. I joined as a graphic designer and was later promoted to Art Director and hired and managed four great designers and worked with a team of writers and web programmers to design and create development and fund-raising materials, publications, and marketing collateral. Based on the quality of work produced, a number of clients from outside the Health System enlisted our services. Among them was the Duke Law School, Duke Engineering School, and Duke’s Nicholas School of the Environment.
