My Skills

Having many years experience in advertising and graphic design, this is a quote I take to heart when it comes to my clients. I love taking on new challenges and taking ownership of a creative project and being able to manage all aspects of it, all the while guiding it to new levels. My clients say the two most prominent qualities about me (aside from my creative talent) is my dedication to any project I commit to and my ability to quickly problem solve in an emergency.
