    United States - Last active: 3 days ago - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 7

    I have spent the past several years honing my skills as a freelance graphic designer, illustrator and animator. Through this process I have developed my work ethic as well as my skill set. Having the opportunity to work with a plethora of companies has taught me how to adhere to strict and timely deadlines, as well as adapt my personal artistic style, and mode of communication to fit the needs of diverse clients. I have created promotional products, animations, packaging, brand concepts, and illustrations just to name a few tasks. I have received consistent positive feedback, and in return I receive back-to-back projects and work on many assignments at any given time. I feel extremely comfortable brainstorming with clients to grasp their complete vision, as well as juggling the projects that I am required to complete. I have the ability to take a clients vision and turn it into a tangible, useable product, or design. This ability and the positive feedback I receive make my job rewarding on a daily basis.
