My résumé covers all of my educational and professional experience I have had in the different fields of visual design. I started on this path after I graduated from West Virginia University. I had always enjoyed visual art since I was young. Upon leaving WVU with a bachelor’s degree I had already decided I was going to further my education but instead of following my original path, I changed it completely and attended The Art Institute of Philadelphia to study graphic design. While there I received a few awards that included Best Portfolio and was nominated for a couple others upon graduating. My career started quickly landing a job as a full time graphic designer right as I graduated. Once I stepped into the professional world it became quite obvious if I wanted to maintain a successful career I would always have to keep up with the rapidly changing profession I chose. At that point I started studying web design and development at Camden County College while continuing to work as well. With a true passion for what I do, I still find myself constantly learning new techniques, coding languages, and changing trends in the field to keep myself professionally competitive within this industry.

Below is my current résumé that will bullet out all of the important steps I have taken along the way. It touches on all of my education and professional experience I have had as a designer. It also highlights the different skills I have developed along with the software I have become proficient in using. Below you will also find links to download a pdf or print the résumé section of this page.
