The visual world mesmerizes me. The verbal world intrigues me. When I see the perfect union of these two, brilliant. When I see the sloppy, ripped-off version, pathetic. But guess what? I love the challenge of (as “they” say) making a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. Give me an eye-rolling, “NO, REALLY??” kind of project and I will return a masterpiece. My traditional skills blend with today’s digital realm offering you a broad range of resources. Additionally, I am innovative, patient, adaptive and friendly. I like working in a team environment and settle easily working independently. I ask questions and make sure I know what’s what. I love mentoring and teaching others, as well as being a student. I believe in working from the position of “let’s fly to the moon” which hopefully gives the project more potential, keeping in mind the bottom line. Yes, we all need to eat.
