Creating Visuals that Strive

Who am I?

I create visuals that strive. I’m a graphic designer for 5+ years that uses branding and illustrations to solve problems. Throughout my journey, I help companies and clients to create their ideas into a visual reality. I’m a team player but I am willing to learn under senior leaderships skills including communications. The mascot was designed after my schnauzer Max
