MORE ABOUT ME

Very creative, loyal, responsive, fast worker, self starter, and motivated individual. My clients always
compliment me on my ability to quickly understand their project's vision at the outset. Printers always
appreciate receiving flawless camera-ready art from me.

When I am not designing I love to create pottery, taking long bike rides, photography, working out,
gardening, kayaking, boating, crocheting, hiking and enjoying nature.
