Background

Summary

Located in Los Angeles, I’ve been working in the beauty & cosmetics industries for over a decade and have worked on creative projects for other industries as well during that time. I specialize in art direction and design (print, web, motion), branding, copy writing and video-editing. I work mostly in digital but have a solid knowledge of package design, pre-press and printing processes. I’m able to manage the entire design process from concept to production all while staying within budget.
