In my current position at nüCamp and freelance clients, I work with a team of talent responsible for the development of various design concepts reaching across multiple industries. I manage day-to-day activities related to client projects while developing and working towards long-term goals.

Software Experience


Over the years, I have worked with many software applications primarily on the Mac OS. Some are now long gone or not as popular (Freehand, PageMaker, QuarkXpress), and others have evolved into essentials tools. Today, I primarily work with the Adobe Creative Cloud suite of apps, WordPress, and a text editor.
