I get lost in design work like some get lost in a good book. Art has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Fine arts - drawing, painting and sculpting - acted as my gateway into digital arts. A computer screen? It's just like an empty canvas.

Since achieving a BFA in Graphic Design, I have been creating art and design for eleven years. I have extensive experience in both print and web based design with a strong background in marketing and online media. 


Resourceful and creative in solving any design challenge, thorough and detail-oriented, able to work under pressure with multiple projects and deadlines, ability to work independently or collaboratively, continually looking to inspire and be inspired.
