I’m a Graphic Designer with eight years of experience in digital brand marketing design. I’m passionate about creating design solutions that not only surprise and delight, but also obtain results. Having held positions on both the creative and project management sides, I have a solid understanding of what makes a successful creative team. I thrive in creative, fast paced environments where I am able to pivot quickly to meet ever-changing creative needs. I am seeking a role in which to expand my skill set and explore a new industry.
