2 Skills
I am an artist, student, and professional working in the disciplines of graphic design, graphic art, sculpture, and photo-restoration. I am currently based in San Diego, CA where I work for various clients (business and individuals alike). I provide excellent quality with quick turn-around times, while always keeping in contact with the client to insure feedback for a perfect end result. No task is too small or too big as the design for specific companies, events, and individuals is key in creating the perfect look for that project. Attached is an overall condensed resume, that is constantly growing and highlights a few examples represented in my portfolio. I look forward to your business.
