I possess a passion for the profession and a strong conceptual and analytical approach. In my work, I've striven to balance experimentation with a desire for perfection. I have a strong artistic and typographic sensibility, a profound knowledge of Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, AfterEffects, QuarkXpress, Microsoft Office, as well as Flash, Final Cut, Dreamweaver, HTML. My work experience includes projects for print and web, where my illustration skills have come in handy.
