Hi, I'm Andy.

I am a dedicated hard worker that went to school for graphic design. Time and professional experience has shaped me into a well-rounded individual. With my various experiences I’ve obtained a volume of skills and expertise in computer programs and design theory all across the board. I’m well versed in customer relations, making vague ideas into reality. I’m a creator and an innovator, a visual problem solver.
