My creative background consists of an art education at the Maryland Institute College of Art where I earned a BFA in Graphic Design, a Minor in Art History, and a Concentration in Curatorial Practices. I am a true believer that in order to be a great artist, one must be a diverse artist. While my primary focus concentrates on graphic systems (branding & visual identities), I am also experienced in hand lettering, fashion graphics, product design, publication design, package design, exhibition design as well as an introductory understanding of web and interactive design. I can write HTML as well as CSS. I have a strong background in observational drawing having won awards as a Marie Walsh Sharpe scholar (awarded to 2% of applicants). I am skilled in multiple printing processes such as digital fabrication, letterpress, screen-printing, linocut, etching, and monotype. As my resume shows, I consider myself very fluent with Adobe Illustrator, and skilled with Photoshop, InDesign and DreamWeaver. I have experience with Adobe After Effects and Flash, writing action script and developing motion graphics.
