Throughout the past few years of my life out of highschool and in college, I have participated and been part of many groups, sports, activities, and grown thoroughly as a person and a designer. I am very experienced in Adobe Photoshop(also RAW and Lightroom), Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver, Print, and all of the Microsoft programs. I have some experience in Flash and 3D modeling(such as Google Sketch-up and Blender). I catch on to programs very quickly, and thoroughly love it every step of the way.

I often find myself searching the web pursuing a full understanding of everything graphic design related and what really catches the public’s eye. Next I find myself on the computer for hours on the adobe suite creating exactly what I imagine, every detail in place, with a clear message presented through much practiced technique and talent. I am president of the Graphic Design Club at Highline Community College. Every Friday I lead the Graphic Design meeting, talking about how to provide people with inspiration, how to enhance personal style, create innovative design, and make a career doing something they love. I have a very organized and fun agenda every week. I am also part of the Illustration Club, and Photoshop club. I also attend school as a full-time student and find myself teaching people how to use the adobe suite, while winning graphic competitions and working on extra-print related projects with the instructors. I have made some of my own clothing and I love painting and photography. I have a couple portfolio sites online and I take portrait photography for people regularly.. I have a variety of interests, I like to be busy, I take action on my own.
For over two years I have led music ministries and worked with several teams of musicians to put together songs at Highlands Communty Church by singing and playing keyboard for children’s ministries and adult ministries.
This has helped build my confidence speaking and performing in front of people, putting together engaging power points, creative graphics, working with and leading a team, as well as understanding how different people think.
-I have taken 8 years of piano lessons and have been playing regularly for over 14 years. I recently taught myself guitar. I have quite a passion for music.
This has taught me perseverance, organization, patience and teaching skills.
