For as long as I can remember, my passion has been design and technology. I’m fortunate enough to have turned what was once a mere hobby into a profession by fine-tuning my talents for graphic design, motion graphics, web design, and a wide array of branding services. I have quite a bit of industry experience, working as a creative for SNHU.edu, SustainX, and various freelance clients performing across a variety of mediums. Nothing compares to the gratification of helping new clients achieve their goals through brilliant branding, rich media and stunning campaigns. In addition to my professional experience both in-studio and working remotely, I possess a solid fundamental and aesthetic foundation from my time at Southern New Hampshire University. If you are interested in stepping-up your corporate or personal brand presence, I welcome the opportunity to exceed your expectations.
