Hi! I am a multimedia designer that uses Design Thinking & Human Centered Design approaches. I have a few certifications & awards under my belt for design/consulting. I specialize in multimedia production, design and strategy. I am a graduate of Augsburg College with a MAL & a BA in Communications. I have been working in the banking industry as a full time design lead and digital consultant as well as freelancing within many other industries. I lead in a sense of fearlessness, I take initiative now matter how familiar with the task I am because the experience helps. I am also a service based leader and enjoy mentoring other designers. My work as resulted in patents, new products and services; and features & functions.
My benefit to any organization is positive leadership, innovation, process improvement, tech prowess and service. I set an example in hard work, dedication to craft, service and mentoring greener coworkers. Service as a designer is what separates a self directed art into that of something people would want/need. I have a unique and diverse set of problem solving skills, techniques and ideas that have made huge strides with little to no increase in financial impacts.
