Graphic Designer & Illustrator

Summary

I’m a graphic designer and illustrator who worked up the ladder from providing freelance services to lead graphic designer at a small marketing firm during the six years I worked there. During that time, I also pursued providing my branding and illustration services as a freelancer and share my work through multiple channels online. After being laid off in July, I’m looking for the next place to further my creative career.
