1999 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Bachelors of Art degree: Concentration in Painting and Drawing
Visual Fine Artist; UI & UX Designer; Brand and Marketing Consultant
I have over 18 years of excellent experience in several industries. Specialties include user interface design, user experience design, web design, presentation design, brand identity, marketing collateral & product marketing for print and web. Over the last 15 years I have worked closely in business development for startups and well established companies in the Internet Technologies Industry, Fashion Industry, and Oilfield Construction Industry. I have worked well in teams in the marketing departments of major corporations, and helped lead teams in that worked with ad agencies in the telecommunications and fashion industries. I use my background as a creative thinker to see the big picture of a project, then break it down visually into the smallest details to create thoughtful solutions for sales, and marketing needs.
I am a stickler for defining all variables of a project with detailed scope documents, storyboards, and wireframes of the work to be produced before a project truly begins. However, when necessary, I have experience with using a focused “shoot from the hip” execution when a project has an urgency for completion. I enjoy problem solving, and defining solutions to needs or issues by using visual explanations backed with well defined verbiage. I approach projects already thinking “outside the box”, and look to always define current workflow processes and then redefine processes in workflows that are wasteful and/or dated.

2004 – Present: Double Rafter H Construction Brand Development and Brand Manager.
I developed the Double Rafter H brand originating from one of the brands used by my Texas family. I also developed logos and marketing material for the sister companies of DRH. I continue to manage the Brand and marketing collateral for DRH Construction and it’s 11 year old charity fundraiser, the DRH Register Skeet Shoot and Scholarship Fundraiser held every October.
2012 – Present: YPS Industries Director of Software Development and Software Implementation with DRH Construction.
Since 2012 I have been in a Project Director role for YPS Industries focused on the development of a cloud based platform for Project Management, Job Costing, and Communications in the oilfield services industry. I work directly with our Austin based software firm CabForward, and with DRH personnel in developing and refining a minimal valued V1.0 product. This web application is currently running DRH Construction back office processes and has begun to redefine the current way the business conducts business in an affirmative and positive way.
Recently I lead the efforts for streamlining DRH business workflow processes and implementing a standardized company nomenclature of all operations. These efforts are used by the software as a control for project communications. The implementation of standardization, and with the integration of mobile apps, information from the field is now being seamlessly feed to the back office. DRH has been able to greatly reduce the client invoicing time from 5-6 weeks to only 7 days. This has reversed an AR cash flow issue, that last year was millions of dollars behind, and routinely payments on completed projects were 60 to 90 days late. The back office AR audit process has drastically improved by making the audit of a project happen electronically instead of with paper. This clean data from an audited project is now pushed to Quickbooks for the final creation of the client invoice and utilized for near real time job costing, and efficiency reporting.
I am currently positioning this software for adoption by 2 major oil and gas operators, and have recruited the vendors of DRH to participate in a 6 month trial before finally taking the product to market. Product marketing materials have been created to “sell” the value of real time job costing and its inherent efficiencies gained to improve the bottom line. This app has brought real time visibility to DRH’s vendor supply chain during a major downturn in the oilfield services industry, adding to its overall usefulness in this industry.
