Service Description

I work primarily with Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Flash, and also have some experience with Final Cut Pro X editing software.

I am a good collaborator and enjoy consulting with clients to make sure I understand their needs. Typically my work entails listening first to my clients' descriptions, coming up with a series of sketches to offer them some variations to choose from, making whatever changes are required, and then coming up with a final in whatever format is necessary for the job.
