What I offer:

I am a graphic designer by profession. My papers certify a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Communications Management, and minors in graphic design and English: creative writing. However, 15 years of dilligently paying the piper, laying the foundation and honing my design skills have empowered me to feed myself, afforded me a roof over my head and most importantly, allowed me the luxury to enjoy my art. “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.” – Thomas Edison

Cook and “health-nut” by accident. I learned very quickly to be a half-past-six (shoddy) chef and passable quack. All in a day’s work.

An involuntary maid by force. Cleanliness is next to godliness, only when God is coming around. On the flip side, my design work is clean, meticulous, structured, useable and organized (no supervision or hand-holding needed here).

Dog walker, care-taker and animal rescuer by choice. (For that matter, I rescue plants and people too) No need to twist my arm too much to get aid: proven by my adoption, fostering and pro bono works.

A crafty person by nature. The down-trodden has to be an all-round artisté. I sew, hem, darn and even crochet when the need arises. I also scrapbook, vinyl toy paint/create, build cabinets and tile floors! Someone said DIY?

Pianist through training. I want to say that my parent’s hard-earned money for 10 years didn’t go to waste… . Good news is, my handicapped ears has transcended time, and the love of music has in turn made music my muse when I am working.

Avid learner by thirst. As Francis Bacon says, “Knowledge is power.” My quest for knowledge is unquenchable. That is why everyday is a new day to learn something I never knew the day before.

Working with Alex was one of the best professional experiences I've had. … she has all of them: creativity, expertise, integrity, great results! She is also as nice as they come.

Tucker Zinke, Reason & Energy

Alex is an intelligent, self-starting designer who is always seeking out new technologies and trying new ways to solve problems. She was an excellent team member in a very demanding & busy agency. I would recommend Alex …she always gets the job done.

Pat Walsh, patwalsh.com

I have worked with Alex for 10 years on many creative and production retail challenges. She’s always responsive, professional and amazingly great to work with. To say Alex is “ready, willing and able” is an understatement.

Bill Moen, The Moen Group

Alex is a talented designer who is a pleasure to work with. She is very detailed, creative and reliable.

Laura Swern, Social Media Director at Essex Golf Driving Range

Alex is an enormous design talent. But better than that, she's a whole-problem thinker who combines strategy, communication, and media into her work. Plus, she's a joy to work with.

Jay Montgomery, The Montgomery Group

Over the years I’ve had the pleasure of working on all kinds of design projects with Alex, and her work is not only creative and prompt, but also on point with project objectives. Alex is a true professional at her craft and I would recommend her to any prospective client or employer. She is a terrifically talented and a dedicated hard worker who always comes through for us. I don’t know what I’d do without her!

Margie Gilbert, Drape Kings
