Me, I'm all about the design. I could tell you about all of the awards I've won in the past.* But those really aren't important. What is important is creating the most fantastic design I can for my clients. I enjoy working with my clients to achieve the best possible solution for their design problems. Communication and mind-reading** are two of the most important tools I have for making my clients happy. Because that's what's really important–happy, satisfied clients who come back for more design.

Inspiration doesn't always come when I expect it. Sometimes the great ideas come when I'm taking a walk with my ten-year-old, dancing with my fourteen-year-old, creating hands-on art projects or doing anything but trying to come up with a good idea. My cats inspired "pounce. nap. create." I pounce when I have a good idea and put it down on whatever paper I can find. Pouncing also refers to play, which is an important part of the creative process. When I'm thinking about a new idea– a nap or just relaxing can help ideas bubble to the surface. And I think that create is pretty self explanatory. Creation is what brings ideas to life.

*Ok, ok, if you must know, my design work won numerous awards during my seven years as Art Director at Bright Ideas Group in Macon, Georgia. In 2002, I left Bright Ideas Group and opened the doors to my freelance design business–Black Cat Studios. Since then, I've lived and worked in Tokyo, Japan; Dayton, Ohio; Anchorage, Alaska; Vacaville, California and am now based out of Renton, Washington. I'm happy to say that I've kept several clients coming back for more design over the past nineteen years.

**I don't really have ESP, but some of my clients claim that I do.
