Other Skills

I am an extremely fast learner and enjoy a challenge. I love to learn new programs and new methods for design. I enjoy working with people, but I am also a self-motivated worker with a passion for the work that I do. I can learn anything with little to no outside training, as I have a history of being self-taught.
