I’ve been a hands-on designer in the industry almost 10 years and have a breath of skills and knowledge that are an asset to any company/firm I’ve worked for. Having the combined abilities of a highly technically skill designer, the mind of a strategist and the passion of an artist. Not only can I bring much insight on brands from a wealth of different industries. I have been doing packaging, branding and illustration on some of the biggest brands to date. Not just for not just the US, but world markets. I’m a conscientious individual and very much support the collaborative nature of great design solutions. I’m very much a self-starter and take charge personality, priding myself on efficiency and time management as well as the ability to hash out ideas quickly and execute them proficiently. I am not stranger to the ways of demanding deadlines or zealous expectations. I have had the great opportunity to work in many different client bases such as: CPG, Beauty, Pharmaceuticals, Home Goods, Pet Care, Food & Beverage, and the Toy Industry. Including, but not limited to:: Revlon, Almay, Maybelline, Kimberly Clark, Coke, Mars & Mars Pet, Disney/Pixar as well as many subsets of the ColgatePalmolive and Johnson & Johnson Brands
