Title: Graphic Designer
I have decades of experience as a graphic designer graphic here in Greater Seattle. For 13 years I owned a graphic design studio based in Fremont, “the center of the universe”. I am passionate about great design and spent several years working with our community on pro-bono work while raising my three children. Brand work is where I excel and look forward to contributing to Green River’s marketing efforts.
