With a BFA in Graphic Design, and over ten years of experience, I have worked on several print, web, logo & identity, outdoor signage, packaging, and illustration projects. My design experience includes working with brands such as Coco’s Bakery & Restaurant, Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Marbrisa, TaylorMade, LaserAway, and Maderas Golf Course. I am highly skilled in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop; I also enjoy studying typography and current design trends. As a vector enthusiast, I contribute to stock sites such as iStockphoto.com, Shutterstock.com, and Vectorstock.com. Also, I am an avid sketch artist. I seek to continue a career in Graphic Design, and to increase my knowledge and skill within the profession. I also hope to find greater challenges, new skills, and to genuinely help those I work with to meet their goals and advance.
