    Freelance Senior Graphic Designer

    Oakland, CA

I want to be a leader in visual communications. I want a portfolio that swells with my creative ideas, realized and implemented. I believe the world would be a better place if people gave great design the credit it deserves. I smile to myself every time a FedEx truck rolls by or a beautifully designed way-finding system points me in the right direction. I want to learn, evolve and grow into the person that makes that moment happen for someone else.
