ETHIC

 

"​I love visualizing a project from the ground up through launch and beyond, and making it happen from concept to marketing.

I am happiest in a busy environment that allows me to be creative, multitask, and work with others, but I am just as capable on my own, with one focused task, directive, and deadline.

I have a strong editorial voice and a talent for providing interesting, original content with visuals in photographs or vector art illustration.​

I am an excellent manager, but am also able and willing to take direction, or to let other ideas into the big picture. I am not afraid to roll up my sleeves and get the job done. I will jump on board with executing the design and details it takes to get something off the ground."
