Summary

If you are looking for an individual who is passionate, dedicated and has the constant desire to learn, look no further.  I am a hard-worker with an eye for detail and a contageous positive energy.  I am very analytical, and am willing to take that extra step, learn that additional program or put in that extra amount of time and research to make my design vision into reality.  I have a broad range of skills ranging from rendering and technical drafting to graphic presentation. 

I strongly believe that design influences every person, every day.  Being able to be a part of that influence and knowing that what I do now will impact how people live, act and experience now and in the future is the drive that makes me want to always do more.  If you are looking for an individual who is extremely passionate, creative, dedicated an open to whatever career path heads her way, look no further.  Meet Candice Riley.
