About

 

With print and digital media knowledge,
I’m able to provide a consistent experience through multiple facets of a company’s brand.

Further knowledge of HTML and CSS helps
me communicate effectively with developers
to create and improve all types of solutions.

 

Professional Experience

  • Affirma Consulting - Visual Designer 2014 – Present
    Work with clients or internal teams to gather requirements around processes, workflows, current user experiences with an interface and any other pain points associated. Information gathered is then presented through various means. This ranges from low or high-fidelity wireframe prototypes, annotated wireframes, visual design comps. 

  • South By Sea (Destiny Collective) - Illustrator 2013 - 2014
    As an illustrator, I worked with account managers from colleges nationwide who submitted design requests for events needed by sororities and fraternities. These illustrations required quick turnarounds and were printed on garments, water bottles, and other miscellaneous items.

     

  • Catholic Printery - Prepress Technician 2011 - 2013
    Responsible for printing documents for catholic churches along the west coast and Hawaii. This required communication and coordination on both ends in order for churches to receive deliveries on time.
