Ramat Gan, Israel
Ramat Gan, Israel
I have been a graphic artist for 12+ years now, and I have worked in many different types of fields and medias. I enjoy trying my hand at new things, It allows me the freedom to create and design. I am a quick study, so I am always yearning to learn more in order to better myself and my work, so that it may benefit others. I have gone back to school to advance myself in web design.
