I solve problems through design.

A motivated, articulate, occasionally amusing, and innovative advocate of creativity.

Here is how I work. Being a designer who also is an artist has given me the ability to navigate strict budgets, tight deadlines, and stressful work environments while also being able to maintain flexibility and a creative mindset. A good designer knows how to design his best work even when he isn’t feeling it. They know the ins and outs of project timelines (i.e) how to have a clean workflow, demonstrates seamless organizational skills, are quick to producing relevant designs, and have a proficient knowledge of color theory and typography. And when creativity wanes, a good designer always has a wide library of designers in his head to look to for inspiration.
