About_photo
welcome to my portfolio
As a designer I strive to be effective. I desire for people to see my work and become curious. I achieve this by constantly analyzing visual compositions and questioning what makes good design experiences memorable. Revisiting the principles and elements of design throughout my career has sharpened my creative process. It's important for me to be mindful of my surroundings so I can extract inspiration from ordinary situations. Sketching is a vital tool which allows me to explore forms an ideas. However, to effectively communicate a concept skills need to extend past artistic abilities; listening, observing, and asking the right questions allow me to achieve accurate execution. As a designer there are many topics that will be the focus of my work which encourages me to never stop learning.
