Thank you for taking the time to have a look at my portfolio. Below, you’ll find a few samples of projects I’ve worked on over the years. In my work on these projects, I’ve learned that there is often not “one” skill for a project. While initially a project appear to requires only Word or Photoshop, I’ve found that, to create the highest quality work, I often use multiple tools. To me, this keeps the project moving along as quickly as possible and gives the client a superb product.
WordPress Website Design
One of these sites was designed for an alternative energy sales start-up, while the other was for a book publishing project. Both of sites required Plugins, modification to the CSS, and extensive Photoshop and Illustrator work, and one included video feeds and links to social media.

Online Course Materials Design
These were from an online course in Network Marketing and show two different deliverable from the course. One is a page from the PowerPoint presentation created use for both the webinar and as a download from inside the course. The second is a Worksheet that students could download and complete. These materials required PowerPoint, Word, and Photoshop.
App Process Design & Google Play Store
The creation of a great App requires a stellar process flow, especially when working with freelance designers. This App was designed to perform complex calculations related to cryptocurrency. Once the App is designed, I also implemented the store in Google Play. This project required Illustrator, Photoshop, Excel and PowerPoint.

From resumes, to cover letters and LinkedIn profiles, employment documents are all about the showcasing the client. Some of the best resumes come from interviews with the client, because that’s when they really say want they want and how they want to be represented. Such documents required Word (tables, styles) and Interviews.
Whether creating a Business Plan or an Executive Summary, business documents require time to gather all the resources like financials, demographics and market segmentation, but also to have conversations with the client about the purpose and mission of their project. This is ultimately what sells the project to investors and customers. The types of documents require expert knowledge of Word and Excel.
I believe presentations are one of the simplest and most effective tools out there for communicating a message People like something to look at and it gives the speaker a format for talking points. The best presentations provide an outline for an expanded dialogue. One of these is for an investor pitch, while the other is for an affiliate program. These required PowerPoint, Illustrator, and Photoshop.
Brochures, business card, flyers, posters – There are a thousand ways to get your name out there. Great marketing materials serve to represent you with style and professionalism, which is a great first step in building a relationship of trust with your customers. These kinds of projects requires Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
Publishing – Content, Covers, formatting
Print-on-Demand publishing is a wonderful channel for getting your word out, and after you’ve written a book, you have to figure out a bunch of stuff to publish it. I’ve worked on a couple of books to create the covers, format the interiors for CreateSpace, and serve as an author and editor. This type of work involves Word, Illustrator, and InDesign, Photoshop.
grant writing & research
Grant are a boon to nonprofits, and they can be a pain in the back-side! Writing a grant involves research, narratives, financials, metrics, reporting, and biographies. It’s easy to get lost in the requirements of a grantor or foundation, and so hiring someone who’s been down that road many, many times ensures that your organization isn’t overlooked simply for missing one of the requirements to file. Skills required are Word, Excel, and for this actual annual report from my time as a grant writer, InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop.
