I have excellent design skills and over 26 years' of computer experience. I am very passionate about graphic design and always challenge myself in one form or another. I see one of my major strengths being my adaptability; I am able to jump easily from being a designer and creative thinker to a decision maker. Also my passion for the traditional arts has been reflected in my creativity for over 30 years. My personal hobbies include every facet of design from drawn and painted art to photography, movie related props and costumes, 3D animation, sculpted models, scratch built miniatures, to custom design work on interiors and exteriors of vehicles. My adaptability and creativity can be seen in my design work where I am able handle any task I’m given, be it web, multimedia, motion, branding, or print, model design and set design.
