Creatively Crafted

Art Director

Designing on various platforms comes naturally to me, and I am grateful for that. I am an award-winning Art Director with 10 years of experience capitalizing in Graphic Design and Web Development. Experience within multimedia, marketing, and social media. Extensive track record with assessing needs, recommending products and services. I’ve even had the fun experience directing and being in videos and photography productions.

I live by the word Meraki, which means you leave a piece of yourself, your soul, creativity, and love in what you do. All projects created and/or maintained with precisely those things; creativity, love, and a bit of myself left in each.

It’s beyond important you are proud of the work I create for you, and I am more than confident I can accomplish just that. Let’s talk and get started on your next project.


SKILLS


I joke about being a Swiss Army Knife. I have a wide range of skills that make what I do for a living a lot more fun + exciting and they give me the drive to keep moving forward. I am by no means an expert and that’s where the hunger to continue to grow kicks in.
