Through the skills and experiences that I've gained in my international experience, my aim is to work with a team of professional and creative counterparts that would allow me to continue to grow as a designer.
As a digital media designer, my most significant strength is to complete a project from art direction to output. I feel that my strongest tool for delivering quality work is a combination of effective communication and flexibility. Ultimately, having an open mind with a sense of productive urgency makes a quality end product that I can deliver with pride.
