Portland Native; Professional Creative Strategist, Visual Communicator, and Community Activist. I have honed and learned by way of 30+ years of Experience to Command Modern Communication Tools needed in today's marketplace and I am able to provide the “Talent” that you are seeking to utilize these tools to achieve your objectives.
