ABOUT ME


I have been working both as a full time and freelance graphic designer for the last nine years – from Los Angeles to San Francisco to Washington, D.C. – always in search of exciting, innovative and challenging opportunities.

 

As a “jack-of-all-trades” I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, including responsive design and development, digital and print advertising, logo design, brand management, social media marketing, packaging, user interface, content management and more.

 

My extensive knowledge in Adobe Creative Suite, HTML/CSS, Microsoft Office, Photography and Illustration allow me to play a crucial role in a wide assortment projects, while my time management skills and attention to detail allow me to implement each client’s unique needs.
