Just a little something about myself
Here you can find a few details about who I am as a person,
and how I can be of use to you and your needs.
Come on, don't be shy. Get to know me.
My passion drives my creativity.
I am a multifaceted creative who enjoys print design, digital design, photography, social media, and video production - I love to do it all. I am constantly learning new ways to push the envelope. I do not enjoy residing in a comfort zone, things need to be shaken up a bit.
- Highly active in converting constraints into valuable opportunities.
- The term "can't" is not usable in my vocabulary, there's always a work-around.
- Spendthrift on several types of tutorials to stay ahead of the learning curve.
A few of my services
These mediums are where I concentrate a lot of my strengths. I'm a technical person, so order is essential in achieving my goal.
Video production, motion graphics, and social media require precision from designers. My brain tickles whenever I take on these tasks.
Logo identity, digital photo & retouching, and PowerPoint presentations are always going to be in demand. I just wait patiently on a new opportunity to dazzle a client with an "aha!"
Empathizing, ideating, and designing a visual that satisfies users' frustrations can be challenging. On the other hand, for every problem in real life, there is always a solution.
The process when starting a project
Here's the breakdown of how I approach each and every project. Sometimes the process is firm, and other times it can be flexible.
Discuss the project
Meet and communicate with the client.
I love all professional backgrounds and the people that represent them. You can always learn something to use in your craft.
Develop & elaborate
Probe so that the project results in clarity.
Indecision or uncertainty usually plays a part in verbal communication. You have to assist the client in what they mean to say.
Revise concepts for approval to final launch.
Just because the project is completed by the deadline, doesn't mean your job is done. You did it right, but expect a change to come later.
A list of some of my skills
As a creative, I strongly believe that it is important to be versatile in various forms of communication and marketing.
Teaser of Video Skills
I cannot count the number of times that I have seen my favorite movies. Over the years, my passion for multimedia has equipped me with a keen insight into video production and motion graphics. There have been loads of times that I have sat in front of a computer screen for hours perfecting visual media. This video clip is just a preview of what I can do with video footage and animations. Sometimes, I even think that I missed my calling in not attending film school. The best part about being a designer, I get to include all forms of creativity into one medium!
A Sneak Peek of my Resume
This is just a brief summary of what I've done and who I've worked with over the years. I love different aspects of design!
I possess proficiency in all of industry standard design and business applications. My work has been developed through applications such as InVision, Sketch, Figma, Zeplin, Adobe AfterEffects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe DreamWeaver, Adobe XD, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, HTML5, CSS3, and Microsoft Office. Over the years, I have effectively worked in fast paced driven platforms. I am all for working independently and as part of a team. Teamwork makes the dream work.

There's more to my artistic background than what you see on this portfolio. I live and breathe art,
so it's rare that I come upon a challenge to do a task in a project that I haven't done alternatively.
