Hi, I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design. I am currently working towards my a Masters in Graphic Design. I've worked on and off as a freelancer since I graduated, so about 3 years now. I have recently been doing small jobs for churches in the town I currently live in. I'm more of an Illustrator than a Graphic artist but I dabble in everything and anything.My primary programs are Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. I've dabbled in Coral but I'm more of an Adobe user. I currently live in Parsons, Kansas, it can be found on a map so I guess the town is not as small as I originally thought. I have some of my work posted here while the rest of it can be found at my deviantart account. If more information is required please let me know.
