CURRICULUM VITAE

Drawing on my formal training as an illustrator, I've developed a facility and enthusiasm for coordinating creative professionals, both for exhibitions and for publication.  I have experience with CMYK and RGB printing processes, with digital publishing, and with generating promotional materials, online and off.  

 

My dedication, attention to detail, and creative problem-solving skills have earned me an international reputation among artists, publishers, and in the sf&f fandom & literary communities.  References are available upon request.
