FREELANCE AVAILABILITY
I’m currently available for hire on illustration, graphic design, and print production projects. Please contact me here. We can discuss your needs and I can quote an estimate of my cost.

ABOUT MY FREELANCE WORK
I primarily work digitally-only with files setup in the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator). I find this helps communication in being able to quickly share works in-progress. As an experienced Project Manager, I believe in transparency throughout the creation process and strive for good communication practices. I will keep you updated with progress checks to verify my work is staying in sync with your intentions.
