May 2013 - Present (8 years 8 months)
Working on various projects for friends, family and small businesses. I have experience working with digital, print and web design. My responsibilities are producing quality designs in a timely manner. Establishing a relationship and understanding the clients needs in any project. My goal is to always produce a design that leaves the client satisfied and happy with the end result.
Freelancing has allowed me to continue what I love to do and help people when needed. I am always excited to hear about a new project, as well as meeting new people. It has helped me expand my network while continuing to grow and learn.
