I am a freelance graphic & web designer.  With background in traditional art & photography, this is where I house my creative digital work.

My first graphic design training was when we were still taught the old-school way of designing everything by hand with technical pens and rulers and when fonts were stenciled in or applied as stickers.  My first manual camera in college was before the birth of digital cameras.  But I come from a time when the professors, in college, accepted reports in all forms ? hand-written, typed (on a typewriter) or on a computer and printed.  And, I didn’t want to let go of my ‘manual’ SLR.  It’s almost romantic reminiscing on it.  But it didn’t take me long before I moved on with the first wave of transitioners.  This was when I found a second canvas, a new medium.  It was the quick gratification that made my eyes sparkle among other aspects but there was no turning back.  I still appreciate and use handmade goods and I will, maybe forever, hold on to certain things done the old way.  But, in this internet era and speedy evolution of technology I am in with the new, ever-changing.

From business cards to one-page websites to e-commerce websites online, I can help you or your business build a professional presence.
