About me

I am a seasoned Graphic, Web, and UX Designer with eight years of experience in all facets of design, and the overall creative process. My expertise is diverse across all mediums, and I have mastered Adobe Creative Suite on both Macintosh and Windows platforms. I am also experienced with mobile design for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone environments. My background consists of working in various industries, including commercial real estate, marketing, hospitality, and technology.

Although I embrace art in all forms, I believe that simplicity is beautiful and incorporate this style into clean and practical designs that satisfy the purpose of my clients’ needs. As quoted by Charles Mingus, “Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, awesomely simple, that’s creativity.”

If you’re searching for a meticulous, skilled and innovative designer, then look no further.
