It goes without saying that working as a graphic designer, every job is all about multitasking. On any given day I have worked on ten to twenty-five projects simultaneously. Each with different deadlines, degrees of complexity, and levels of priority. However, for me, every job was a puzzle to be solved. It is a challenge, and one I welcome and enjoy.

I am a fast paced, hard working, creative individual; ready, willing, and able to find a solution to any design challenge that comes forward. When I’m not working on something, I’m looking for something to work on.
