About me Image

Maclain Thornton

Student

I am studying Engineering Physics because I have a passion for approaching things analytically. However, I also enjoy being creative. I have been involved with Graphic and/or Web Design for more than 4 years. I also have experience in Sales, Social Work, Law, and Politics. If you are considering me for a job, whether it be a freelance web design or an internship opportunity, I have experience that allows me to provide quick, productive, and positive value.
