The Basics:

I am a creative professional with 10 years of entertainment design and multimedia related experience .I have been lucky enough to have worked on many diverse projects that range from theatrical key art, UI/UX design, Flash design and banners, specialty packaging, presentation design, and storyboarding. I've been a respected leader of creative and design teams working hand in hand with production and marketing groups as well as outside vendors on an assortment of projects. I have a proven track record to produce and execute successful deadline driven projects. I would love to be a part of an exceptional team where I can contribute ideas, learn, and plant some roots. I am not hung up on titles and bring no ego to the table. I do however have a strong desire to always learn and improve and most definitely bring my passion for art, design, and creativity.
