Introduction.
I specialize in helping businesses strategize in bridging the gap between business narratives, branded design, impactful marketing and data-driven learning. My fields of expertise include: UI/UX design, brand strategy, marketing and public relations, machine learning, competitive intelligence analysis and data science. 
My professional experiences have trained me to be a fast-learner, to hit deadlines while maintaining a consistent level of quality, and to work with a range of clients. My work ethic allows for my earnest love of learning, precision in craft, unique perspectives, adaptability, and unbridled dedication to design, making me a flexible candidate for working within creative teams, collaboratively and independently.
