Welcome to my online portfolio
In 2009, BD sold the division in which I was working. Not a very appealing time to find a job given the economy, I decided to take the road less traveled by taking freelancing positions. The last few years I have spent working in digital media. My past experience working in printed media has provided a solid foundation for the ever-changing world of visual communications.

Because of todays technology, communication is changing constantly. I believe education comes in many different forms, and as such, I keep up with it by learning in many different ways. Whether reading articles or searching the internet for information and videos, I make sure to keep up with the latest software and trends.
I have accumulated many skills in my career and some I use many on a daily basis. I have listed some of them below. .
