Designer, Retoucher/Restorer

Los Angeles, CA, USA
I’m a graphic designer with extensive experience and a natural eye, and though I’ve worked with Fortune 500 clients, I really love working with smaller businesses and nonprofits. I’m known for my positive, streamlined approach that’s based on a wealth of expertise, degrees in graphic design and psychology, and last but not least - a sense of humor.
