About

Placeholder

A junior graphic designer with five years experience with the management of the design process, from concept to delivery. I've always had an eye and interest for visual arts, but what cemented my passion for visual arts started due to my love for the business, skateboarding and fashion industries. Skilled with the Adobe Creative Suite (Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign) and additional web design applications (Word Press and Shopify). Also able to create visually engaging e-commerce, apparel and product designs on time and budget.

I'm passionate and always looking to push myself to expand and would love the opportunity to speak about how I can leverage my skills with you!
