the Resume.

Who am I

I present my title as a User Experience and Brand Identity Designer, but you may find I'm more than that. In the start of my studies in college, I was pursuing the great possibility of architecture but due to out of state financials I stayed close to home and pursued engineering. It was enjoyable, the AutoCAD, sketches, creative ideas, and building but chemistry showed up and it wasn't for me. From there, I changed to media arts but again that wasn't for me.

Then a professor told me about graphic design, caught my attention quickly. I didn't change majors but worked hard with a passion for learning graphic design and have been doing this since. I am in my 13th year and have developed skills from print, digital, branding and user experience. During a portion of my career, I studied advertising which was great! Having completed many things like campaign designs, website development, logo design, brand development, creative strategy, the design of apps and more, I feel like I can take on any challenge.

My resume spans from helping Fight Colorectal Cancer (non-profit) establish a new brand, creating a campaign and co-brand products for Andis Clippers, Bumpcare to assisting smalls businesses and start-ups get started with a great, flexible brand that attracts up growth for the business. Now with that being said, how can I help you visually with your business since this is what I do.
