ABOUT ME

“A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.” – Steve Jobs

With over seven years of professional creative design, tech and production experience, I’ve learned the benefits of being a team player. However, I can also attest to the benefits of having an understanding of everyone’s role. I’m adaptable, willing to change course to find the most efficient route without cutting corners because I like to have my cake and eat it too. I can take direction just as well as I can delegate depending on the situation. My client relationship skills are also second to none and come easily to me as a small business owner myself.
