Hail and well met!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my portfolio site. You probably just finished watching the video, so you should already have a great idea of what I am willing to bring to your available graphic designer positions. Your time is important, so this dedicated page is going straight to the point on why I am really interested in working for Blizzard and what I offer as a graphic designer.

First, a little bit about me: I am a Rocky Mountain native, and l love video games, drawing, anime, hiking, camping, photography, and a good cup of coffee. I want to emphasize that I am willing to relocate immediately. Once the pandemic subsides, I look forward to being a part of an onsite working environment that engages in strong teamwork.

SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY

While I am applying for this position primarily considering on my skills as a graphic designer, I also share an incredible passion for Blizzard games already. Now I don’t say that just as a fan, but as a proactive member of the community who already helps others enjoy the games that I love. 

I do this as one of the Blizzard Forum MVPs and through creating unique video content that supports Blizzard’s games. You will also find that I am very familiar with the Overwatch League and have been doing what I can to support the increasingly popular esport. I also engage in and enjoy watching other Blizzard Esports and with the Call of Duty League in my spare time.

Here is one example of my work in motion graphic design that summarizes all of the changes for the 2021 season to help guide viewers of the Overwatch League.
