Portfolio & Description
Good day/evening, and thank you for visiting.
I am a versatile visual designer with experience in print, web, interactive and video media.
I prefer to take an empathetic, customer-centric approach to my design — focusing on user experience, usability and function.
More mentor than manager, I am extremely humbled to work with — and support — the amazing creatives I have had the privilege to work with. While I consider myself to be a jack-of-all-trades, I marvel at the creativity and technical prowess of those specialists who surround me. They encourage me to become a perpetual student and push my creativity beyond the bounds of my own imagination.
Should you find yourself in need of a passionate creative who take a project from conception through execution, please feel free to reach out. If I am not a good fit, I appreciate you stopping by.

I am ACTIVELY SEARCHING for employment.
I know InDesign like the back of my hand and can wield a mean brush and pen in Photoshop and Illustrator.
I am also tri-lingual — speaking English, HTML and CSS.
With my trusty phone, tablet, laptop and DSLR as my constant companions, I work to shape, mold, excite and organize. With empathy as my secret weapon, I work to shape better, more engaging, more memorable user experiences.
My interests in branding and marketing — and how design impacts them — make me consider the numbers, while my multimedia technical prowess makes me a well-rounded, versatile Creative.
