Interest

Making things pretty, be it a photograph, a business card, a website or a graphic that needs to come to life.

I love being creative in different ways.

I love learning new programs, techniques and anything to better myself.

I am an idea maker.

Design by Memories

I created Designbymemories.com several years ago when I would take pictures I had taken and than dress them up like digital scrap booking.  I would than frame them and hang them on the wall of give as gifts. I ended up enjoying it so much, i made about 70 templates ranging from babies to weddings to friends/lovers and family. Below are some examples.

Summary

I could bore you will the details of my resume and tell you how qualified I am but you can read about that below. What I am going to tell you is that I am a dedicated, loyal to the end, fun to be around, laugh stress in the eye, can adapt anywhere you put me and will never let you down. I’m good and fast and deliver on time.
