Profile

A very creative person who values collaboration in a diversely skilled team, but can also find great pleasure in a quiet creative corner where great productivity and ideas come together. My goal is to continuously improve my design skills while delivering a completed project that is able to bring a smile or excite anyone who sees the work. “Oh wow! I love this!” or “I want it, it’s so cool,” are a few of my favorite reactions.

Experience

I consider myself very lucky to have worked with some of the best people and companies in the industry.
