Samuel Riveros
UI/UX Graphic Artist and Multimedia Developer.
Simplicity is, as simple as you make it.
Summary

Welcome to my online CV. I am a professional 2D/3D graphic artist and multimedia developer with great level of proficiency in UI/UX design and development. The media mastered over my career represents a logical acquisition of skills and techniques. As a multimedia major in college, I have learned and practiced the art of multimedia with combined use of graphical user interface for easy user interaction.

Having a diverse skill set enabled me to work on many projects outside my regular routine. I have had the opportunity of working on exciting projects such as educational software, independent short-films, computer animation and videogames for independent artists and arts organizations. I have also built many websites over the years - and I am always looking to bring my creative perspective to using the Internet for communicating ideas.
