I have a solid foundation in stationery design and etiquette.With Bachelors Degrees in Journalism and Mass Communication, as well as Graphic Design, I'm confident in my ability to make you look good on paper - whether that be your business cards and logo, celebration invitations and announcements or marketing publications.
My goal is to be the designer for all your needs. Having you choose me to design your print and web media for your company or special event means a lot to me. Having you choose me repeatedly means even more. It's my honor to produce the designs that represent your organization and ideas and moments.
I have full, licensed, current versions of all graphic design software I need to create what you need. I have creative vision, style, and bold document design.
From proposal, to proofing and final product, my workflow and turnaround time are effective and efficient. Graphic design is something that I love and enjoy,
whether it's advertising, informational, or personal. Let me be the freelance artist you always call.
