Graphic Designer – UX, UI
I’m a US Army veteran who loves everything about design. After separating from the Army, I used my GI Bill and earned my Bachelor’s in Graphic Design, graduating in 2015. Since then, I have been freelancing, as well as running a small Web Design and Digital Marketing company with a partner. I love all forms of Graphic Design, but my passion is for Web Design and photography.
