Welcome to my website! I am a New Media Designer - one who uses Adobe Creative Suite with interactivity and navigation through product content, developing creative ideas and concepts to meet client objectives.
I have gained real-world practical experience in desktop publishing, interactive media, video editing and post-production work. I am proficient in desktop publishing and graphic design. My experience includes working across Adobe CS incorporating InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. I was responsible for the overal design and layout of MBEConnect Profiles magazine while employed as a New Media Designer/Interactive Content Developer at MBEConnect in Overland Park, Kansas.
In addition, I have produced several quarterly print, web and interactive PDF Issues. I have gained real-world practical experience in desktop publishing, interactive media, video editing and post-production work. To keep up with the current demand in mobile devices and reaching out to more customers, I was asked to develop an iPad app for our magazine which I successfully designed and implemented. MBEConnect Profiles App can be seen and downloaded in Apple's iPad App store.
My gallery consists of a collection of rough sketches, working drafts, portfolio pieces and real-world projects, working fluently across Abobe CS to video editing and post-production work.
In PSD, removing backgrounds with clipping paths is second nature to me. Having such a diverse pallete to work from, I tend to favor Photoshop and Illustrator for its use of building non-destructive layers, smart objects and creating killer effects. Working in Photoshop, I have drawn portraits for clients using my wacom tablet and the infinite, powerful brushes of Photoshop. In PSD, removing backgrounds with clipping paths is second nature to me. Working in Illustrator, I find myself often recreating high-resolution vector logos from poor bitmapped customer supplied images. Freelance Illustration work includes company branding, cartoons, and vector graphics for client projects.
Feel free to browse more of my portfolio. I am available to freelance. Thank you.
