My Skillsets

I am a passionate creative who values developing deeply connected brands, services, and campaigns to enable stable and successful relationships between businesses and customers.

Print Design

From proper use of spot colors, to knowing how to run the front-end of a print shop, my design skills include more than just the normal print designer.

–  Business Cards
–  Brochures
–  Flyers
–  Magazines
–  Billboards
–  Car wraps
–  And much, much more

UX/UI & Web Design

Web design is valid now more than ever, and I’m proud to have a deep understanding and extended experience with UX design as well as anything needed to be known to be called an expert web designer.

–  Website creation
–  HTML/CSS Knowledge
–  Interactive Media
–  JavaScript Experience
–  Web Ads/Resource Creation
–  Mobile app creation


10 years ago, I couldn’t ever imagine being an illustrator.  But after a few coincidental projects, I fell in love with it, and usually find myself as the primary illustrator at any in-house marketing group I work with.

–  Vector Illustration Master
–  Photoshop Wizard
–  Ability to Adapt to Any Style
–  Blends Seamlessly Into Designs
–  3D Sculpting & Modeling


Ah, the core skill behind all previously listed.  I’ve worked for many top-name brands, and live the designer branding-is-life code to the fullest.  Heck, I even have printed brand standards brochures for both my businesses.

–  Brand Creation/Development
–  Brand Management
–  Maintaining multiple brands
