About me

I am a graphic/web designer with 5 years experience within the industry. I have skills and passion for creativity, as well as possessing a technical mind. 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.”

My experience consists of working in various industries, including commercial real estate, media/marketing and hospitality. During this time, my expertise broadened immensely and I have become proficient in Adobe Creative Suite on both Macintosh and Windows platforms.

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