behind the founder/designer
Creativity is described as a phenomenon that something valuable is created from. Ideas and concepts can then manifest themselves in any form or outlet, and being a creative mind myself, there are some areas I excel at, and others I just look for the creativity and go with it! So, as you are looking through my website you will see a variety of creative forms and outlets, of graphic design. My objective is not to just show everyone my graphic design work, but my creative thoughts in any form.
I’m a progressive designer who has grabbed hold of the world of graphic design to create innovative, exciting campaigns and solutions for a number of businesses and clients.
Design is, was, and always will be who I am and what I love doing. Before I ever set foot in an office I spent my days sketching, painting, learning and creating. Since landing in the professional world, I have continuously pushed the envelope, engaged in strategy, presented to clients and locked myself in a room full of my peers to conceptualize into the twilight hours. I have reveled in every facet of the world of design and flourished with each and every challenge that I face. I reject complacency—I live to set the trend, not follow it. The world of design has been teetering on the threshold of redefinition; my goal is to respect the history, but boldly look toward the future.
