Resume

Welcome to my site. Here you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for to start working with me, whether as a freelancer or an employee.

“How would I describe myself?
Three words: hard working, alpha male, jackhammer, merciless, insatiable,”

-Dwight Schrute

How would I describe myself? Well, I’d describe myself as a multi-discipline designer who isn’t afraid to get a little weird with how to solve a problem. Meaning that I’ll explore even the most unorthodox routes if the design would benefit. It’s a design philosophy that has led me to have a mastery over not only the typical programs, like the Adobe Suite, but also in-depth knowledge over various 3D CAD programs, apps, and other sources of content. I’m just as comfortable in Photoshop as I am in Procreate, as proficient in Solidworks as I am in Illustrator, and as excited about Sketch as I am After Effects.

I work hard. When it hits the fan, nobodies nose is closer to the grindstone than mine. I take my design work seriously (even if I’m not always serious while working). I work well in teams and I can quickly understand who’s strengths and weaknesses can play well off each other. I work quickly and can iterate on ideas at the drop of a hat. Two things I take great pride in are my ability to multi-task and my ability to distill complex problems or situations into simple, easily-understood explanations.

As for a description of myself outside of a professional setting, I’m always learning and making things. I have a laundry list of creative projects with propmaking, illustration, game design, and 3D printing. I enjoy doing all of these because they’re all learning experiences that help inform how I go about graphic design.

Oh and I also enjoy a good graph. So here are a few fun charts that I think describe me really well.
