Objective

As a creative and artistic professional, I have a passion for creating organizational culture via the graphic arts. Such mediums as photography, videography and graphic design are highly important elements in branding a company’s image, purpose and direction. I thrive within high functioning, open-minded environments that value creativity and thinking outside the design box while maintaining a team environment.

"I don't think I ever adequately thanked you for all the work you did on the videos for "Time".

They turned out so wonderfully and gave the look I was hoping for. Actually, they were better than what I was looking for! I know you had to spend more time on finding the footage than we had planned.
