Storytelling is my life – and I’m always working to get to the next level. With over 10 years of professional experience working as a graphic/web designer, photographer, video producer, and writer, I know how to identify and create content that will speak to your audience. I’ve worked for clients and businesses in a variety of fields, including non profit services, high tech, cybersecurity, healthcare, recruiting, publishing, and music.
