ABOUT ME

 

I have been working as a full time and freelance graphic designer for 10+ 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, illustration and more allow me to play an essential role in an array of digital and print collateral, while my time management skills and attention to detail allow me to implement the unique needs of each client.
