Milpitas, CA, USA
My interests, curiosities, and passions are sparked through the process of design. Every individual assignment becomes a welcome challenge. As a graphic designer, I am trained to use conceptual thinking in order to tackle projects. One of my main objectives is to creatively solve problems by applying my well-developed design skills. Achieving solutions through numerous steps of sketch and design, I am able to reach a sense of great satisfaction when a crucial project is completed.
