Professional Experience | Skills | Honors
I am a classically trained graphic designer that enjoys both the online and offline marketing challenges small businesses face. My strengths are rooted in resourcefulness and design integrity that is effective.

I have worked with entrepreneurs, family businesses and multi-national corporations to create strategic marketing plans, design product packaging, develop sales funnels, manage the company's social media presence and deliver premium design for ads and promotional materials.

My work has been seen all over the world thanks to my clients including Sony Music, Arista Records, Bad Boy Entertainment, Nike, Inc., The NBA Association, The Ms. Foundation for Women, UNIC Espresso Engineers, David Rio Chai, Soma Beverages and many more.

I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication, Arts & Design at VCU in Richmond, VA and went on to earn my Masters in Business Administration in Sustainability at Presidio Graduate School in San Francisco, CA. I also enjoy teaching, studying economics, making art, playing music and of course, preparing and eating healthy, local and sustainable food! So, how can I help...?

Michele provides amazing creative concepts on all projects I have hired her to produce. She has proven to be a great collaborator as well as a technical genius. Whenever the opportunity presents itself, I always think of her first to accomplish the strongest marketing collateral for my clients.
Vincent DaMonIndependent Creative Director
Michele is an energetic, all-in business partner. She is a gifted, inspiring teacher, as well as a professional, creative designer. She takes on tasks in totality, or is direct about what she cannot take on -- which is what every manager needs in a colleague.
