Whatever your needs, you need good work.
Whether your startup needs a full suite of materials, or your seasoned company seeks a proven pinch hitter, I can help.
I launched Genre in Columbus, Ohio, over a decade ago. After graduating from the School of Advertising Art and working in both corporate and agency settings, I took the best of what I learned from my colleagues and mentors in both worlds, and hit the ground running.
Since then, Genre has built a creative output that’s serious about the work, but focused on forming authentic relationships too. Prioritizing professionalism and people alike benefits Genre’s final products—which are ultimately yours—in innumerable ways. Creativity and care also define our one-of-a-kind work style.
A human-first work ethic
As a small business owner, I get how challenging it is to find people you can rely on to understand that things get crazy sometimes. It’s so valuable to find someone who just gets it. If you need me to show up earlier than expected or help juggle your growing to-do list, I’ll be there.
Let’s skip the sales pitch. I’ll always give it to you straight and tell you what you or your company actually needs. If we start from the seed of an idea, you can expect honesty about the timeframe, thought processes and costs behind it all. Streamlined and supportive: It’s the only way I work.
Design that respects your brand
From big businesses to small startups, I’ve spent my career navigating a wide range of brand variables, and I understand the nuances that come with each. I immerse myself in every brand guideline, strategy or messaging standard so my concepts enhance your work, instead of competing with it.
Photography that shares your story
Great photographs don't just happen. More often than not, thoughtfulness is the foundation for capturing a memorable moment. I approach each shoot as a chance to uncover the individual story that makes that assignment, and your business, so unique.
A partner who really digs this stuff
I love this work. I love the flexibility it gives me and how it satisfies my curious side. I love to learn new things, see new places, try new ideas and push myself to make something better than before. When we work together, you’ll know you’ve partnered with someone who’s as genuinely excited about this as you are.
