Meeting your creative needs

About Kathleen

Nice to meet you! I truly enjoy playing with software and continuing to enhance my skills and expand my portfolio. I am confident in my tech and design abilities and love working with others in collaborative projects to achieve optimal results.

I am Chinese, Vietnamese, and Mexican and enjoy exploring my mixed heritage through art. In my free time I enjoy gardening and skating.
