Since earning my BFA in Graphic Design from CSU in 2008, I have been presented with a wide array of career opportunities that have shaped and sculpted my very unique approach to design and branding. My work as a freelance designer has covered a range of business types and helped me find an ideal balance of conceptual thinking and target based marketing. I’m constantly finding new ways to improve the synergy of my creativity with the diverse capabilities of the Adobe CS5 programs. I’ve created logos, posters, public relations messaging, and advertising from concept to illustration to final production. Beyond graphics, I have explored a wide array of design opportunities including 3-d art projects, mechanical sculptures, environmental signage/branding as well as large scale trail design and construction. With each new challenge I face, I look forward to drawing upon my strong problem solving skills to meet the deadline and exceed expectations.
