I’m big on solutions. I believe in making things better than they already are. That’s what being creative means.
I have strong skills in drawing, painting, photography, video, and have extensive experience with Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, and Premiere. I have worked as a concept designer, storyboard artist, photo & video composite artist/re-toucher, color corrector, videographer, editor, art teacher, social media organizer, interviewer, illustrator, as well as a producer and director.
Whether it be illustration, photo enhancement, or video work; my goal is to make sure that every step of the process from pre-production to post-production, including publicity is better than was originally thought possible.
My experience has led me to be very adaptable and able to learn new skills as they are needed. I enjoy my work and take pride in what I accomplish.
