About Me

#actuallyautisticphotographerartist

I am a freelance photographer and graphic designer. I first became interested in photography through taking pictures at family events and reunions. I am currently part of the AV & Communications Team at my church, where I am responsible for creating flyers, videos, and countdowns for church events. In my free time, I enjoy creating digital artwork, which I refer to as digital collage art or surreal art.

Environments I'm comfortable with

Driving a vehicle
Heavy lifting
Bright or blinking lights
Loud noises
Working with animals
Working with food
Interaction with the public
Outdoors or places with strong smells
Standing for long periods
Variable temperatures
Uniforms (hard hat, hair net, etc.)

I would prefer to work from home, as I am most comfortable there, but I recognize that part of my job in the photography industry requires me to interact with others. If I am unable to work from home, then I would greatly appreciate clear and concise communication, as well as patience. I sometimes have difficulty understanding directions or forgetting to do something, and I would appreciate it if people would be patient with me as I adjust to the task.
