I love to make stuff look good. I have strong creative instincts, and being able to use that talent in my personal art and also to make a living is very satisfying. I have much experience, but I am always looking to learn more, take on new challenges and work with people that can give me new insights.
Currently I am pretty happy and busy with the work I have, but I am always interested to hear from potential clients that feel I have a skill that would help them out. I am also willing to entertain offers from creative firms that could make full use of my creative skills in a collaborative environment.
