So, a little about me. I’m a strategic thinking designer, art director, and illustrator. During my time in advertising, I’ve had the opportunity to develop creative solutions for large and small brands both B2C and B2B. Being multidisciplinary, I’ve been able to work on a range of different projects from digital, video, print and other media. No matter what type of project I’m working on, I am fully invested in making sure the client has an outcome that fully meets their business needs and the team I’m working with has a fun time working on it.
