Bio
I have been a freelance graphic designer for over 4 years, and early designer yes, but certainly an entrepreneurship on the rise. I have over 50 different clients and major in logo design, product design, ad production, website design, and print media. I have worked with many big and small companies, helping them fulfill their design needs, while also meeting their financial needs as well. I graduated top of my class from Nossi College of Art in 2006 with a 3.7 GPA, and since then was hand picked to be the Art Director over two leading magazines in middle Tennessee, Baby & Children Product News™ and Greater Nashville's House & Home Magazine™. My passion is design and Illustration, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
