MY DIVERSE SKILLS + EXPERIENCE MAKE MY WORK SHINE.

I am a Senior-level Art Director and Graphic Designer with more than 16 years of experience, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups. My work is firmly rooted in creative strategy. Starting with research (competitors, visuals, target audience, current social and cultural trends), I am able to develop a strong concept from which to launch and execute effective and memorable designs with ROI. I'm currently looking to step into a full-time salaried role, where I will continue my growth as a leader and as a creative.
