about who?

Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle.

 Lewis Carroll
(Alice in Wonderland)

Puzzle indeed. Such a puzzle that I’m still trying to solve it by writing witty and/or weird things on this About page. I don’t know what to write, however, since nothing witty or weird has happened today (although it can probably be considered weird that nothing witty or weird happened today). So when something weird and/OR witty happens, I’ll append the witty/weird world here.

In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about my witty work and weird interests, please visit the Portfolio/Projects section and the Creative Journal. Also, reach out to me via social media or simple email via the Connect page.

Speaking more specifically though, I have over 15 years experience in graphic arts & design, customer service, logistics and project management and I’m seeking creative positions in the graphics and motion graphics fields.

My previous work has included 4-color print media, web design, display installations, and event lighting. Management experience includes supervising staff from 4-20 people. Most recently I completed a Front End Web Developer course with a full background in HTML, CSS, WordPress. I also have Adobe Associate Certification for Illustrator, Photoshop and Premiere. So that’s fun.

But what most people that know me would say is that my biggest skill is picking up NEW skills. Almost all of my software comprehension is self-taught and when I can’t create a solution with a tool that I’m using, I find a better or different tool. And when appropriate, I don’t stay within boundaries, but choose to mix and match creative genres. Check out the Experiential section of Portfolio to see some perfect examples of that.

I also possess an incredibly witty and often weird sense of humor. So consider me a safe haven where you can let your freak flag fly.

Thanks for being here!
