In response to the constantly evolving worlds of design and communication that I have been immersed in, and in an attempt to convey my assorted experience in digital media, I have found that I can best be described as an Information Designer. Not just graphics. Not just web. Information!
Continuous advances in technology, coupled with contemporary social needs, have resulted in the enhancement of my Graphic Design and Illustration skills to include work with all manner of digital media, such as websites, social networking and audio/video production. My second BA, in the Digital Technology & Culture program at WSU Vancouver, has provided the opportunity to delve into this contemporary media landscape and gain crucial experience in the professional world.
My dedicated work ethic and creative viewpoints bring about ideas and results that will never fail to impress. I want nothing more than to be able to work alongside other motivated individuals who can, in turn, benefit from my particular style, skills and experience in a socially conscious and responsible manner that will successfully improve the quality of life for everyone.
