Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Storyteller

As a marketing artist, I have experience designing web and print ads, trade-show graphics, UX/UI design for online products, and producing and editing video content for social media.

As a freelance artist, I love historical costume and fashion, comics and animation, and have helped a number of independent creators with story-boarding, costume design, character design, make-up design and I've even helped direct and Operetta.

My next goal would be to take all the skills I've learned and apply them in the game and entertainment industry. I love working for small start-ups and indie creators, but I'm open med-large size companies as well, especially if they value an employee who is flexible and always trying to learn a new skill.
