Brag about yourself - what makes you great at what you do?
I bring to the table not only 15+ years of web design experience, but a combined 30 years of graphic design, marketing communications, editing, and writing. That means I analyze and design while keeping mind the integration of graphic, language and function. My academic background (MA in Japanese Language, Literature and Culture) often informs my "clean" design approach, and my marketing communications experience during my early years built a solid foundation for "graphic design with function."
Clients and former employers include UCLA, the Japanese Consulate General in LA, the City of LA, the Edible Communities national magazine network, the Mar Vista Neighborhood Association, the diamond bourse in Ramat-Gan, an Israeli software company, a famous architecture firm in Santa Monica, and numerous small businesses. (I also taught Japanese in Israel to employees at Toyota, the Israeli military consul prior to his dispatch to Tokyo, and collaborated on various translation jobs.)
