Service Description

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from George Mason University in May 2005 with a Bachelor of Arts in Art and Visual Technology (with a concentration in Digital Arts and a minor in Information Technologies). I have worked professionally as a designer (web and graphics) since 1999.

I am currently available for freelance graphic design projects. I have vast experience with a multitude of clients (federal, local, private sector), and have worked for a large international engineering firm as a graphic designer in their publication's department.

I specialize in both web and print design, and am experienced in visual identities and event planning.

I would love to work with you - please feel free to contact me with question, or for samples of my work.
