I am an upbeat, reliable, hard-working design professional with a strong attention to detail and an eye for good design. I graduated in 2005 with a BFA in Graphic Design from Cal Poly Pomona, and have accumulated a wealth of on-the-job experience since then. Building upon a strong foundation of design theory and production know-how, I have become fluent in page layout, illustration, environmental design, image editing, 3D CAD modelling, and many other related fields. My passion for design runs deep and I strive to be the very best at what I do.
