Summary

My artistic journey has been driven by fantastic storytelling told in games and films that
push the envelope of design and reality. To inspire like those who have done before is a goal of mine, by
working in the game industry and telling great stories and ideas that can be shared with the world.

Experience

  • Graphic Design / Web Design Intern at Jonny Logo
    Comstock Park, United States of America
    July 2017 - October 2018

    I worked as an intern along side their Graphic Designer, mainly working on their Website and a few logo designs for clients. This was a great inside look of the Graphic Design world and how a small company runs in the big world of design and promotional products. As well as some backdoor web design using "Sage". I mainly worked in Adobe Illustrator cleaning up logos, and branding their products for clients.

  • QA Tester at S2 Games
    Kalamazoo, United States of America
    June 2013 - August 2013

    This was a QA job testing the game called "Strife".

    Shadowing artists and getting feedback on personal work. By far this was an exciting and fun experience.

    Every week with the production team we found ourselves playing ultimate frisbee, a good way to bond outside of the office, and make connections.
