I'm a freelance graphic designer who works at a local production studio in Tulsa, OK. I have a strong passion for understanding the art of creating movies. If I'm not working on a paid project I'm creating something w/ audio or video. I enjoy movies with heart more than movies with a budget, but both together are definitely nice. Simple enough... i hope :)
