Design is my passion. My favorite thing about being a designer is taking a client's work to the next level, taking what is sometimes a loose idea and creating something concrete and refined. I don’t have a set design style because, as a designer, my goal is to be open to varying styles, principles, and possibilities so I can create something truly unique and custom-fit to each and every client as well as be able to work within a set brand image.

Throughout my work experience, I have been characterized as the problem solver, whether that problem is technical, customer service–based, design-related, or anything pertaining to the business I am employed under. I don't like having loose ends, and I like taking action to resolve challenging situations.

Over the past few years, I have been making use of formal and informal training, in class, online, and on the job. Most recently, I have been learning various code languages, and I have been further challenging myself by learning new techniques to apply to my illustrations. I enjoy experimenting with the Adobe Creative Suite in my free time and trying different tutorials to learn possibilities and solutions within the software that I hadn’t contemplated before.

I constantly seek new challenges, and I love learning new skills and adding to my professional knowledge. I love tackling problems head-on. I love being the go-to problem solver. I love being a graphical jack-of-all-trades. I love it because I love constantly learning, growing, and challenging myself in my career.

I hope to always work with others who share my desire to continually improve. Read Less
