Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council Website & Weekly E-News

As Communications Director of the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council, I developed this CMS-driven website (Joomla). The content management system provided immediate updates of news and events, tied directly into the organization’s weekly e-news (that I also managed), and allowed the organization to take online membership signups for the first time.

Quarter Moon Business Card

I designed this business card for Quarter Moon in late 2011 as part as a new identity launch. This was inspired by the launch of our Etsy shop. The Quarter Moon website was also re-designed with this same design theme, and I also designed a tri-fold promotional calendar to send to customers. The business card…

CD Covers Wrecked Mixes 2010

My 2010 mixed CD was the second of two mixes I’d made of nothing but cover songs. These were always fun to make. I titled this one, “You Can Judge A Band By Its Cover.” I used stock photos for the front and back, and had great fun adding the type and effects to make it look like part of the book. For “Wanderlust Vol. 5,” I used my own photos for the front and back covers.

CD Covers Wrecked Mixes 2009

For the 2009 CD mix covers, I used stock photo art for the “Glam-R-Us” mix of glam rock tunes , and for “Wanderlust Vol. 4” I created another collage — this time using vintage postcards – for the “Wanderlust Vol. 4” mix. All the postcards included on this cover are from cities or places mentioned in the songs included on the mix.

Minnetrista Web Editor

As a temporary, fill-in web editor for Minnetrista, an art, history, and nature museum, I managed daily updates of the museum’s CMS website, compiled the semi-monthly e-news and regular email blasts, and managed the mailing lists. During my time there, I launched the organization into the (then) new arena of social media marketing.

CD Covers Wrecked Mixes 2008

I invested the most time in the 2008 mix cover, but had the most fun with it. My hometown of Muncie was known as Middletown, the focus of an ongoing series of studies since the 1920’s that showed Muncie as the economic and social barometer for the rest of the country.

Allan Hays Company Digital Services Brochure

I created this brochure for the Allan Hays Company, LLC multimedia services. The digital media company had evolved from the Allnight Production Room recording studio in downtown Muncie, Indiana, adding video and internet services to its offerings. The company had just relocated a few blocks from its long-standing studio on Mulberry Street, to the historic…

Certified in Prepress Digital Workflow

I became certified in Digital Prepress & Workflow from Vincennes University in 2007, after a 9-month intensive training “boot camp” in the Adobe software suite, with a focus on file repair and pre-print production processes utilizing digital workflow.
