I begin by gathering and searching for relevant information. During this time, I try to fully comprehend the nature of the project and what it requires, possibly beyond what was originally intended. Next, I begin a process of conceptualization using words, images and drawings. After a number of rough concepts are created, I review this with the client to see which idea would work best in a finalized format. Then, I begin creating a high quality image (either on paper first and then through digital mediums). I use the latest graphics software to produce 2D imagery that meets the standards of the project. I review the close-to-finished work with the client before wrapping up the final images. I then deliver the finished assets in the form of JPEGS, PNG, SVG, or Adobe based files.

I prefer detailed emails that give clues to what the project is intended for, who the audience / customer is, and how I can help create graphics or visuals to help. I can also talk over the phone to gather more details. Specifically, things that help me figure out what might work best are:
- Photographs (source photos or examples)
- Images (graphics or illustrations that point to how you would like things to look)
- CAD Files (technical specifications with dimensions or specific views)
- Website References
- Project Report (the Who, What, Why, Where, and How's of your project)

I love being create something new and novel that attracts viewers to the content or a business. To create compelling and alluring illustrations and designs is what I live for. Moreover, I absolutely love the process of creating graphics that distill complex information into an easy-to-understand graphic.

The freedom to pursue the clients that I want, with my own style and process of execution. I love to help people doing the things a love to do.

I work hard to create high quality and thoughtful graphics. I dig deep, and search for visual solutions that go beyond what was required.
