Service Description

I am currently seeking graphic design, apparel graphics, illustration and/or textile design opportunities.
I would truly appreciate a few minutes of your time to discuss how I can be a resource for you.
I am available in a flexible capacity so you can scale your team to meet design needs. I have enjoyed being on my own for several years, but greatly miss the interaction and collaboration of working on a team.

I do have an external portfolio/website. I can send this URL, my resume and referrals upon request.


Thank you for your time. :)
