PERSONAL: My forte is the facilitation of communication with my ability as a storyboard sketch artist. I feel I have made an important and creative contribution in all the collaborative work I have ever done. Instead of being rigid about the creative direction of projects, I enjoy stimulating ideas from others that spark unexpected and exciting solutions to design problems.
