I was proud to be a part of the new Health First brand and to expanded on the visual foundation laid by Contrast & Co. My role as the Sr. Graphic Designer was to provide art direction for print and digital pieces produced in-house and by vendors. Additionally, I was responsible for the conceptualization and production of a wide range of deliverables including digital ads, social media content, internal videos, outdoor advertisements, webpages, building signage, newsletters, dynamic PowerPoint presentations, and Microsoft templates.

In 2021, I created an interim style to refresh the Health First brand until a larger rebranding project was launched. The style simplified the existing brand into something more modern but left it recognizable as to not impact brand recognition. The samples included are from the Virutal Visits campaign, which can still be seen across Brevard County and online.
In 2020, I created a COVID-19 style for internal and external communications for Health First. My approach was to create an uncomplicated and bright way to share easy-to-follow messaging. The colors and recognizable icons worked well in print and digital environments including billboards, social media posts, flyers, webpages, and signage.

Work for Ripley's included multiple books for both children and adults, as well as tradeshow booth designs. My role included art direction, production, and conceptual mock-ups for future publications.
I created a series of animated gifs for children's ebooks for this project. Crates slide across the screen, and after exploding, the animal was left on top with a silly speech bubble. Other animals included a dog, duck, elephant, and bunny.
Back in 2010, I created a custom HTML website and series of rich media Flash banners for UBS that showcased an event called The Decade Ahead. To this day, this project remains one of my favorite. It was an eye-opener about problem-solving, time management, and at the time pushed the limits of HTML/Flash technologies.
While working for the City of Cape Canaveral I was responsible for the visitor experience and maintenance of the city's website. Through community engagement, I lead the redesign of the city website to a more user-friendly and ADA-accessible experience using the software Revize.
