What is your freelance service?

Art direction, brand consultant, graphic design

Briefly share how you became a freelancer. 

While in school for graphic communications at the University of Houston, friends and their referrals would approach me about doing design work for them. Since then, my freelance gig kept growing.
 

What has been your biggest win as a freelancer?

I had an opportunity to brand one of my favorite festival in Houston: Via Colori.

What are some of the hurdles you’ve overcome as a freelancer in Houston? Do you think this hurdles are indicative to Houston or to the freelancer profession overall?

I think being burnt out was one of the biggest hurdles of freelancing. As freelancers, we exchange time for money and sometimes “the clock” keeps running (even during vacations). One must learn to set boundaries and rest.
 

What advice would you give to someone just starting out as a freelancer?

Start building your portfolio toward the type of work you enjoy doing. Once you build a portfolio with works that you enjoy, then it is easy to attract clients with similar work.

Let’s say I’m a client that’s looking to hire a freelancer that does what you do. Why should I hire you?

I have experience from an award-winning advertising agency, and I also teach visual communication at the University of Houston. So I know design. I have worked in the field for over 10 years. I strive to innovate and I take a lot of pride in my work. I strive to build a professional (and fun) relationship with my clients, and try to know exactly what they are really looking for.
