The name is Amanda better known as "mom" to the three gremlins I have taking up space in my house. They don't care that I am a graphic designer but since you are viewing my portfolio YOU DO! So thanks for that bit of validation and checking out my stuff.
I have been designing since 2003 when I started school at the Art Institute of Dallas and dabbling in photography since 2010. Most of my experience has been with in-house advertising agencies but also working as a freelancer with various clients ranging from doctors' offices, small businesses, and national companies.
