A little about me:

Overall I’m an ambidextrous creative who thinks laterally and looks out for ways to increase value, efficiency and usability.

I’m looking for contract design work and would consider offers for full or part time work.

I most enjoy working with people doing new things, or old things in new ways. I thrive when there is no formula, and the stakes are high.

I have a redundancy radar and love user-centric efficiency. I’m a staunch user-customer advocate and will vocally represent them in any scenario.

I provide extra value by finding what needs to be done, then how. Skills are means to ends.

I really prefer visuals that don’t overwhelm, but invite a closer look. Likewise I prefer words that don’t tell you what to think but rather spark the right questions.

Skills

I have strong communication and visual design skills, which I apply in constant reference to both the big picture and user’s experience. I also have technical and software skills that makes me a valuable addition to a team. 

When it comes to specific programs, I can use many, perhaps not always as fast as others, but if you get anything from this resume, I hope it’s that I stand for quality and doing the right things well.

Graphic Design

I enjoy crafting visuals to enhance usability and communication. I’m familiar with Affinity Designer and Adobe CC. I also produce graphic art and illustration.

Web Design and WordPress Development

This is not the direction I’d like to head in, but this technical background definitely helps me design for the medium and work with developers.

Game Design

Beginning with modding for Unreal Tounrament and extending to indie game development, I’m self taught (actually, Google taught) level designer and game designer / developer using Unreal Engine.
