Why Hire Me

Story exists in every design medium. It reaches beyond entertainment. It leads to evoking emotion, knowledge and understanding of the story being told. My goal is to craft a story with every expression of design, whether it be through photography, typography, eLearning or writing and directing. Being a part of a team and leading collaborative groups to help bring fresh ideas to execution is where great stories live, and I thrive in those kinds of environments.


Education
