Service Description

I have been working successfully as a graphic designer and animator for the past seven years. In 2004 I received my Associates degree in Animation Art and Design from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, and since that time have worked for various companies in the Web, Print and Production sectors. After relocating to the Salem, MA area I decided to work from home and offer my services to individuals as well as companies needing digital solutions for any of their most ambitious market objectives. I am noted for the speed and accuracy of my work, and the integrity of my relationships with each of my clients. No project is too small, if it successfully meets with the clients wishes.
