Full-time, I am the Graphic Communications Manager for the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin (ARCW), having earned a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) degree in Communication Design from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD). Through the conceptualization and design of patient/client collateral, including print, digital and website media, as well as donor-based event marketing graphics, invitations, annual reports and philanthropy appeals, my work impacts the successful outcomes of the patients we serve. I also freelance as a graphic designer and enjoy photography in my free time. All my photos are taken with the use of lens attachments and my iPhone, a new art form commonly called iPhoneography. My work can be seen in galleries, museums and local businesses around the state under the name Mb Squared Photography. I currently reside in Bay View, Wisconsin, a Milwaukee lakefront community.

Great designers never retire. They eventually die.

I would teach them to draw. Not necessarily teach them to draw something particular, though rather, just put their pencil to a sheet of paper and create something; simply introduce them to allowing their ideas flow onto the paper.
