Stephanie Mote

Multimedia Consultant, SMS

Kent, OH, USA
I have worked in various jobs that have focused on customer and client support and assistance, collaboration with peers, and a strong work habit and moral ethic. I am interested in working in a creative field, particularly in digital animation. I currently run a small freelance job doing character design/concepts, digital paintings, and occasionally sewing accessories. I believe that one of my strongest areas is the ability to work in a creative collaborative environment and I am looking for a position that will provide that sort of setting.
