01 | creative communications
I have immersed myself in branding and communications for more than a decade, with extra attention on serving not-for-profit organizations. I create new logos and brand identities as well as follow established design guidelines.
02 | artwork with a purpose
traditional art techniques are at the core of my foundation. illustration is fine art that tells a story in a way no photograph can. I've been fortunate to illustrate magazine spreads, corporate training manuals, nonprofit journals, and more.
03 | copywriting & copy-editing
my experience ranges from reviewing and tailoring existing text to suit a specific purpose to creating original content for a designated audience. although my experience is primary in writing newsletters, website content, and ad copy, i have also utilized technical writing techniques for creating
step-by-step teaching guides.

Business Transaction Team : Getting Results
As a business leader in an intensely competitive arena, you’re expected to get the job done right, get it done quickly, and still keep the bottom line above water. Do less, and you’re sunk. So why accept less from your legal counsel? Imagine having a team of attorneys on board and accessible, ready to weather even the roughest storm, while you rest assured that your organization is being cared for—every step of the way. All while keeping your bottom dollar top-of-mind.
At Davis Wright Tremaine, our Business Transactions team is driven to do just that. Our attorneys represent a wide scope of industries, with significant experience in hospitality, wineries, telecom, and software development, including purchasing and inbound licensing of software products. We’re equipped to serve companies of any size, and make it a priority to appropriately scale our client teams to fit the needs of each business we represent. With ever-shrinking legal budgets, precise action and appropriately staffed legal counsel is needed to save you time and money—without sacrificing results.
We believe in taking time—our time—to really get to know our clients and understand the unique challenges facing them. Knowing our clients provides us with sufficient perspective to identify possible issues on the horizon and help them navigate smoothly around conflict. It also enables us to swiftly and accurately assess when to act and what risks are appropriate to take when a challenging situation is imminent.
