Education

 

I have been working as a graphic designer for over ten years and have developed a variety of skills. To make myself more official, I enrolled in college and graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. I also earned a Promotion Management Certificate in 2022. I learned about the graduate program in Art & Technology at the University of Oklahoma and was accepted in the Fall of 2022. I expect to graduate in May of 2024.

As an intern in East Central University's Marketing Department, I worked for a year and was the lead graphic designer for most of that time. I had to negotiate with B2B and B2C and created designs for different mediums. My public metal sculpture is located in the Ada Art District in Oklahoma. I have also had my artwork accepted in art shows in Chicago, IL, and Natchitoches, LA. I have hosted and curated my own art show called "The Frame That Don't Fit Show."

I have experience with Adobe Suite, Social Media, Microsoft Office, Digital Printing and layout, Photography, and Event Planning. I also have experience with Maya, Unity, and Apple software or PC.
