My goal is to work in a position with a team that allows me to use my skill set to create great projects I can stand behind. I want to push and expand my abilities by learning from and collaborating with my peers to strengthen my creative and developmental skills.

I specialize in web/graphic design, branding, and identity. The primary tools and languages I work with are Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and HTML5/CSS3. I also build custom WordPress themes and have experience in project management. I believe that open, honest, and effective communication is essential for a project’s success.
