I enjoy the "what ifs..." of design, and the " actually, we can do that..." of emerging technology.
Experience with both in house and freelance design. Worked closely with both engineering and marketing departments on various projects to meet client needs. Have lead and been part of many successful design projects. Has never missed a deadline given.
