A native of Youngstown, Ohio, I graduated from Youngstown State University in 1993, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Since then, I have worked at several regional marketing and design firms.

In 2004, I changed my focus to freelancing and now operate under the business name Clever Crow Consulting & Design. I have extensive experience designing corporate identities, annual reports, catalogs, social media graphics, digital magazines, direct mail pieces, book covers and interior layouts, sales sheets, brochures, logos, press kits, digital magazines, print and digital advertising, coupon inserts, P.O.P components, packaging, email marketing graphics, video graphics, motion ads, and websites. I specialize in the creation of WordPress content management system websites, with or without e-commerce integration. I am experienced in social network marketing and strategy.

I work in regional, national and international markets and have clients from all over the world.


Graphic design is not about pretty pictures; it’s about meaningfully and creatively communicating your organization’s message through visual media. Impeccable graphic design is vital to a successful business and works hand in glove with any winning branding strategy and marketing tactics. I’ll artfully represent your organization to create clever design solutions.

A clear, well-conceived brand is vital to any marketing effort. It pulls clients and customers into your orbit by expressing the core truth–the brand promise–of your organization. It communicates what your brand is, and what it is not. Let me help you develop your brand effectively.

Even in a profoundly digital world, good book design matters—there’s nothing quite like a good book. My book design services—for both cover and interior layout—will make your book look as good as it can, with an attractive, engaging cover and easy-to-read interior that is custom-designed for your requirements, using classic book design paired with modern digital tools.

Functional yet compelling web design is integral to effective business marketing. The days of the exclusively bricks-and-mortar business have given way to a digital storefront with a worldwide audience 24/7, wherever you are, whoever you want to be. This means that your site must look great and work even better. I’ll design your site with your needs and your consumers’ expectations in mind, bringing together ease of use and a memorable, desirable user experience that will bring people back to you and let you further grow your customer base.

Marketing, historically seen as a cost center, is increasingly viewed as a driver of sales. Good marketing tactics are essential to actively promote your organizations product or services. I offer time-tested marketing services designed to bring your organization to market in a compelling and impactful way.
