If I was a poncho, my label would read: One Size Fits All. My innate curiosity has helped me assemble a diverse creative toolbox. I thrive on taking ideas and bringing them to life.  Regardless of my role on a team, I champion hands-on, collaborative work environments. I am a designer, a strategic thinker - but most importantly - I am a craftsman.
