Helping brands articulate their vision and purpose through visual language, Solving problems creatively and telling stories in memorable ways is what I aim to do for my clients – using unique concepts, creative experimentation, and collaboration to reach a functional, intentional and aesthetic outcome.
My teachers and employers have commended me for my high level of interpersonal skills and naturally engaging personality.
