Resume of Joshua Pearson

I am a Graphic Designer and Interactive Media Developer with knowledge in back-end development, I also specialize in audio and video production, which I often combine with my work.

This experience gives me the confidence to tackle all aspects of a project, from the creative to the psychological, to the usability and functionality of interfaces, to dynamic social media integration, I am kind of a 'one-stop-shop' when it comes to building solutions for my clients.
