Hi, I'm Alex

I am a graphic designer and artist living in Jackson, Mississippi. My main weapons of choice are Photoshop and Illustrator, but I still know my way around a pen and paper. I have spent the past 5 years working as a professional designer and have taught myself web design along the way.

Secondary Skills

I try to be a jack-of-all-trades, so I'm always looking to pick up new skills.

IT

I believe if you work with something all day, you should understand how it works. Given the nature of my job, I have had to learn basic computer repair and have developed a knack for picking up new software.

Illustration

I try not to let those art classes go to waste. I primarily design on the computer, but when it comes time to put pen to paper, I work in ink and acrylics.

Web Design

I have recently become a bit of a code monkey, and have a solid understanding of HTML and CSS. In fact, you're looking at some of my handywork right now.

Photography

I have worked as a professional photographer, and I'm a wizard at photo retouching and manipulation.
