I am seeking a work opportunity alongside a team of individuals who not only can recognize and excercise my personal skillset, but also challenge me to think and create beyond my current ability. I am a practiced designer with 8+ years of experience in the field and the mindset to learn. I hope that employment not only means I have a job, but I have a setting to express myself through my work and to hopefully open my mind to other styles and methods of art and profession.
