Download Resume

I’ve always had interest and talent in art—the process of creating something that wasn’t once there. I’m very lucky to be able to take that interest and turn it into a career. By developing a concept and making it come alive through art direction and design, I’m able to create marketing that isn’t just visually interesting—it’s something with meaning that drives action.
