Who Am I?


 

I am a Visual Designer, for lack of a better term. A melting pot of branding, print design and web design; sprinkled with all things digital — and topped off with Front-End Web Development and Javascript skills. I’m a dog lover, experience seeker and a collaborator who constantly seeks to learn, help and grow.
