I am a well rounded Industrial Design graduate from the Columbus College of Art & Design and also attended Pensole Footwear Design Academy for few sessions. I am seeking freelance work and design opportunity mainly in footwear design but, because of my curiosity within the field of design and my ability to speak multiple languages, I am also interested into other visual areas, such as Industrial design, product design, graphic design. Feel free to contact me with any questions, comments or concerns.
