What I Do.

I've continue to picking up new skills for various projects and clients. I have gone from a traditional artist to graphics/branding designer to 3d artist to web designer. I have enjoyed every new path I have been put on and have found success in most.

  • Illustration

    Specializing in elucidating concepts by providing a visual representation that corresponds to the content of the associated text or idea. I work in traditional media as well as digitial, providing various types of deliverables from concepts and storyboards to wireframes and finished branding campaigns.

  • Branding

    Branding is all of the ways you establish an image of your company in your customers’ eyes. By building a website that describes what you offer, designing ads that promote your goods and services, selecting specific corporate colors that will be associated with your company, creating a logo, and featuring it across all your social media accounts, you are branding your company. That is, you are shaping how and what people’s perceptions of your business are.

  • Web Design

    Utilizing a mix of design and programming to create the visuals and interactions of the web. Open minded. Willing to tackle any challenge. I never stop learning, changes happen fast and often and it's necessary to keep moving forward.

  • UI/UX Design

    Both elements are crucial to a product and work closely together. A great product experience starts with UX followed by UI. Both are essential for the product’s success. Responsible for the development and improvement of quality interaction between a user and all facets of a design and also responsible for the transference of a brand’s strengths and visual assets to a product’s interface as to best enhance the user’s experience.

Skillset

I've Got Some Skills.

You need someone who has a wide range of skills. One day I can be doing user research—interviewing customers, writing surveys, analyzing results, etc.—and the next day I’ll be doing interaction work, visual design and code.
