Summary

I have an Associate Degree in Illustration Design and a real interest in the future of digital arts. I feel at home making art, just as I do in a wide array of games and stories. I spent my youth drawing, sketching and playing games! Drawing comes naturally for me so I work to take my talent to the next level!
I have extensive knowledge of Adobe products, with an expertise in Photoshop. I have fused my traditional skills with my digital skills to create amazing designs. I have proficiency with a multitude of devices and software that help bring to life the most basic of ideas.
I have a good eye for detail and a wide range of styles, something I picked up from all the things that influence me. I notice even the smallest aspects of designs. I also have the ability to suggest new ideas and to present these ideas to the clients. I have great decision making and analytical skills along with the ability to stay calm and maintain a friendly attitude even when working in very stressful environments.
