I am a freelance photographer/graphic designer. I started taking photos at family events and reunions which led me to want to pursue a career in photography. I am part of the AV & Communications Team at the church I attend. So I'm in charge of creating flyers for events & activities. I also take photos during those events/activities. I also am in charge of creating the church's countdown video and also creating slideshow videos, and putting videos together. In my free time I like to create digital artworks I like to call digital collage art or surreal art.

Environments I'm comfortable with

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

It would be great to be able to work from home since that is where I am most comfortable, but I know that interacting with people is a necessary part of my job in the photography industry. If I am unable to work from home, then I would appreciate clear & simple communication as well as patience. It happens when I don't understand directions immediately or when I forget to do something.. Patience with me when I don't do a task correctly the first time. My brain needs time and constant repetition to get used to a task, if that makes sense.
