Skill Overview

“I consider myself first
and foremost an artist.”

With a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design, I have worked extensively on graphic design projects and Internet site development for many high-profile clients for over 15 years. My skills span the graphic design field including print, web, web application development, standalone application GUI design, motion graphics, photography, 3D modeling, video production and editing, technical writing, and various presentation software. I believe that creativity depends on never becoming stagnant. My answer is to constantly look for ways to evolve by seeking fresh inspiration, surrounding myself with other creatives, and improving with each new project.
