Before graduating as an Art Director from the Creative Circus, I worked as a staff product photographer and also freelanced for a few years. I am currently seeking a position where I can grow as a professional and contribute to the organization by utilizing my creative skills and approach.
Q: Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Freelance project work has been very up and down over the years. I look forward to landing in a full-time/permanent role, growing with a company, and sharing my skills and experience.

Being able to do what you love and are passionate about. If you apply your key strengths, skills and experience to a role and love what you do, it is not work.
