Brief Summary
I'm an experienced graphic and web designer, specializing in design that swims in color, movement and takes advantage of every opportunity for eye candy. I am proficient in the complete Adobe Suite (CS5) and comfortable on both Mac and PC. I have been both a team asset and a one-man show, covering the full spectrum of the design process with calm attention to detail. I have also been well-trained in video editing and motion graphics, recently earning my BFA in digital media production.
