ABOUT ME

I am a Sports Emmy Winning Creative Designer

currently located in Los Angeles CA.


I've been studying design methods and techniques over the past 20 years. I have an extensive background in digital media and project management along with experience in video editing including motion graphics and photography. Earlier I studied at Mt.
