About Me

I am a highly detailed oriented and passionate designer. My passion and meticulous eye for detail has made me an effective team leader and designer. I thrive in fast passed and chaotic environments and am not afraid of rolling up my sleeves and doing some hard work. I am self-motivated and enjoy learning or trying something new.
