Work

Design has always been a love of mine, and what started with my heavy interest in print, has evolved into a complete adoration for every kind of design, from logos, and illustration, to website design and animation.

I’ve become very close with the adobe suite, such as Illustrator, Photoshop, Indesign, Bridge, Premiere, Animate, and Experience Design. I also have a personal love for UXPin and balsamiq.

    Communication

    I am a great communicator. I can present my ideas well in-person, and in writing. I’ve worked hard to sharpen those skills because I feel that the value of a great idea is lost if I can’t present it in a way that others can understand and connect to. I love working with a team, and with other skillsets, such as project managers and copywriters.
