After more than a decade in New York, NY creatively retouching, enhancing and preparing digital images, I moved to Oakland, CA. Now I work with clients in San Francisco and nationally either on-site or remotely using FTP.

I bring with me a unique mixture of digital image manipulation, creative, pre-press, and administrative skills acquired from a variety of high-end commercial clients with a fine-art attention to detail.

• images used for:  print ads, editorial publication, catalogues, exhibition, promos, and the web
• industry exposure:  fashion, entertainment, telecommunications,  pharmaceutical, and e-commerce
• extensive background working with beauty, product, jewelry, cosmetic, and still-life images
• prestigious clients including:  Sotherby’s, Interview, House & Garden, Angelino, Men’s Health, H&M, Armani Exchange, Luca Luca, Verizon, Intel, L’Oreal, Pfizer, Gap, Piperlime, The North Face, Jansport, and Square
