PROFILE
I am a creative. My place in the Graphic Design Universe is driven by my love of design and compulsion to communicate through the visual arts. To make a career for myself in this industry is important, so I can live through my talents and share them with the world.
I am a 2013 graduate of the Seattle Central Creative Academy Graphic Design Program. The program trained me efficiently, not only in the Adobe Creative Suite, but also expanded on the importance of layout, attention to detail, trend, user interaction and experience, proper typographic treatment and effective presentation skills. Being an illustrator, my eye for detail is unique and I am always seeking out new ways to experience things visually.
