ABOUT ME

“Modern work demands knowledge transfer: the ability to apply knowledge to new situations and different domains. Our most fundamental thought processes have changed to accommodate increasing complexity and the need to derive new patterns rather than rely only on familiar ones. Our conceptual classification schemes provide a scaffolding for connecting knowledge, making it accessible and flexible.”
– David Epstein

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.
