Objective

Bringing concepts to life is the primary focus of my career. I illustrate character sketches on a daily basis. I design clothing to help others connect with their own individual style. I also make it a priority to use Adobe Illustrator daily because it develops and sharpens my imagination and style. Designing identities for upcoming businesses is a focus of mine, and I believe developing their web presence is just as important as their brand. Design is within me. I love helping people and businesses transform their ideas to life. Experience with: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign; graphic design and typography; professional printing and production companies; photography and photo manipulation; managing multiple jobs simultaneously; freehanding and drawing out of my imagination; working effectively and efficiently with individuals and teams; creativity and following detailed instructions when required; effective verbal and written communication and organizational skills; customer service; attention to detail; and a high degree of openness to new approaches and new ideas.
