ACHIEVEMENTS

PERSONAL SUMMARY

My drive in life is to do the best and even go beyond at what is required of me in what is expected of me. As a Christian, it is crucial for me to work hard and do better than my best. I have years of experience working with clients in many diverse areas. I developed a passion for Graphic Design at a very young age yet it is not my only passion. I started acquiring intelligence in high school and used that effectively to making accomplishments. At one point I was blessed enough to be competing nationally in high school design conferences. Later I was hired by local print shops to develop stronger career skills. Finally, I was hired by Apple Corporate where my entire worldview was challenged and questioned. The job was amazing and challenged me in a way I didn't know was possible. After some changes in life I chose to leave the position in July of 2018 and am pursuing new ventures while doing some consulting work as it comes. I am blessed by many diverse clients that have taught me some amazing skills to be an honorable business man. Growth and maturity is ahead in my life and I hope you will be part of it.
