I was born and raised in the United States. I have recently spurred my career in graphic design. I really enjoy designing logos. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my work and meeting expectations of a design idea, I can never stop until it's the best it can be. I received my degree in IT in 2003 and haven't had the opportunity to use that degree until recently. I use Adobe Illustrator primarily to create vector logos. I also have a reputation for exhibiting a wide range of skills as an assistant, including transcription, data entry, and accounting for a small firm. My core competency lies with Microsoft based programs, as well as, Quickbooks for accounting. What makes me different from other freelances: I meet my clients expectations and deadlines.
