WHY USE ME

Experience icon

EXPERIENCE I have four decades in visual communications working all sizes of companies. I'm strong in taking raw data and figuring the best way to visually tell the story.


Knowledge icon

KNOWLEDGE For 25 years I have been a successful freelancer doing infographics on almost every subject – oil/gas, environment, travel, biotech, behavioral sciences, law, anthropology. Bring it on.


Journalism skills icon

JOURNALISM SKILLS My degree is from University of Missouri School of Journalism. I emphasize content over design. I bring a lot of reporting/editing skills so I can often flag your copy errors before your boss does. Resume


Technical skills icon

TECH SKILLS My main software is Adobe Illustrator but I work in a lot of programs--and now GIS! AI is vector-based so it can output to any size and almost any format. Software Skills


Speed icon

SPEED I'm "paper trained" from working at major newspapers so I'm faster than most. I'm good at grasping concepts and reducing the drafts needed. However, don't assume I'm available. Contact me first. I juggle a lot of clients. Contact


Personality icon

PERSONALITY I'm not a prima donna; I love working with art directors because it makes my work better. I'm also patient walking newbies through the process. I do graphics, but my goal is "no problems." The Process


LATEST NEWS

Smithsonian Institute icon

From July 1 through mid-August I will be doing spatial imaging for the Office of Facilities Management at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.
If you have a project to do this summer, let's getting it going and finish it before July. I will have my laptop with me in D.C. but I really don't want to do a lot of extra work while I'm there. If you are a company in the D.C. area and would like to meet, drop me an email.

Colorado atlas winning awards

Cover of Colorado: A Historical Atlas

One of my favorite projects, Colorado: A Historical Atlas, has been named best history book by Colorado Humanties and also winner of the High Plains Book Award as best non-fiction. The atlas, published by University of Oklahoma Press, was a labor of love with author Tom Noel. I built more than 100 color maps for the book, some of them requiring topographical backgrounds built from USGS Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data. Click here to see a map from the book.

Cover of Portrait of Route 66

Get your kicks on Route 66

If you get your kicks from history, art, and design, check out Portrait of Route 66 from University of Oklahoma Press. It is a fun tour of images from the Curt Teich Postcard Archives and I got to do a really fun retro map.

Cover of Texas: A Historical Atlas

Don't mess with Texas

My first atlas, Texas: A Historical Atlas, is still going strong and was named best reference book by Texas Library Association. A map from the book.

Cover of Texas Almanac

...and if that's not enough about Texas

One of the largest projects I've done was redrawing all the maps for the Texas Almanac — the source for all things Texas. I took the hand-drawn black and white maps, upgraded them to color digital images and added topographic backgrounds. The project included redrawing 254 counties and 34 subject maps. Click here to see one of my favorite maps from the almanac.

FROM GIS TO
"GEE, IT'S SPECTACULAR!"

DEAR READERS: This website is being built to fulfill my final-project requirements in my HTML/CSS class. I only work on my website when I have completed all my client work and since I've been very very busy, this site in my lowest priority. Forgive me that many parts of it are still under construction. (I would much rather work for you than work on coding!) The infographics page is full of examples but I'm still working on the rest of the portfolio.
