High-Energy, Passionate, and Motivated. As a recent 2009 Graduate of Susquehanna University with a degree in Graphic Design and Music Technology, I am an extremely tech-savy designer in pursuit of any opportunity to embrace the challenges of the professional design world. Having obtained 20+ awards and honors as student designer, I am ready to work even harder as a young professional. I want to do good work, learn as much as possible, and have fun doing it. Although I'm very comfortable working independently, I would love the chance to collaborate with other creative minds on a variety of projects in a positive, up-beat environment.
