I am a well-traveled designer, inspired by the world and everything in it. While studying design in England, I was exposed to many different design styles and techniques. Working with high-profile designers in England to really hone my skills and produce stronger design concepts. Travel has been a big part of my life and continues to push me forward and drive my creativity. Learning design in different countries, and developing a broader perspective of design, has provided me with a wider range of skills and knowledge.
Extensive coursework and design projects have made me confident in a broad range of Adobe software. Also making me self-motivation with the ability to work independently, with clients, and as part of a team. Working on many design projects has provided me with an aptitude for quick creative thinking, and acute attention to detail within demanding deadlines. With my enthusiastic attitude and strong work ethic, I always complete projects to the best of my ability with continuous self-critique and learning.
