Alittle bit about me

I'm a graphic designer with packaging, editorial, print and web design experience.

When it comes to design, I am adamant about creating work that I am proud of. Layout and typography are extremely important to me.

My education, along with my work history, have made me a master of multitasking and getting things done.
