Thank you for visiting

 

I am a Media Designer with over 13 years of professional experience in Visual Communications.  This all started in 2007 with a six-year active duty enlistment with the US Army as a Multimedia Illustrator. During this time I utilized my skill set in support of Department of Defense campaigns to help defend our nation and allies. Since honorably completing service in 2013, I have worked in freelance, primarily in graphic and web design, through which I have helped commercial organizations and ministries achieve their operational goals. Recently, I completed my MFA in Studio and Digital Arts with High Distinction from Liberty University.

I have taught my skill set to working professionals, members of a host nation military, and students of all ages. I am committed to excellence and enjoy serving others.

In the time that I have been his professor, Joshua has shown a level of professionalism and excellence that I love to see in a student.  I have no doubt that he will be a great success in his chosen career path.
