DESIGN EXPERIENCE

I am a freelance graphic designer that has been bringing ideas and concepts to visual life for over a decade.

My personal design style gravitates towards “refined modern” – minimalistic and streamlined, with organic, eclectic, and rustic undertones.

STRENGTHS

A desire to finish the job at hand well, even if it requires going above standard time frames and expectations.

A preference to ask questions and overcommunicate so expectations and understanding are clear, and I desire the same from others.

An ability to work well independently and not require micro-managing of my time, projects, or processes.
