I am a strong visual artist who knows how to work with typography and graphics. I have worked heavily in the publishing industry (magazine, newspapers, newsletter and tribute journals). I have developed excellent layout and typography skills. I have a great eye for aesthetics and a strong sense of composition and color theory, and I am able to follow a style guide. I am quite detail oriented and like keeping things organized. I have a natural understanding of time-line, story boarding and animation. I have worked on many tight deadlines. I work quite well in a high-energy environment. I am also can hand code in HTML and CSS. Plus I am able to read code and manipulated it.
My formal education includes training in painting, drawing, sculpting, design and art history. I majored in graphic design with minors in film, video art and photography. I have worked on many large projects. I have created websites that have brought in more clients with my understanding of how the audience responds to a user interface. My clients/employer have always liked the fact that I can design quickly. I only start the project once I have confronted all the variables first.
