HOBBY : Painting

ABOUT

 

I’ve had the good fortune to be working as a freelancer for the last sixteen years.  I’d like to believe that this experience has helped me fine tune an ability to be a good listener and communicator  with the people I've had the pleasure to work with and for.

 

I’ve worked with a large variety of clients over the years and feel comfortable developing within established preexisting styles as well as brainstorming with my clients to create wholly original content.

 

I work primarily with the latest versions of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Animate (Flash), and InDesign - but have also learned other programs on the fly like Character Animator and Spine as certain projects have called for.

 

In my down time I can be found out and about in Portland with the kids or taking oil painting classes (my latest hobby) over at the local Arts Center.

 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want to chat about some future projects!
