Creativity

"My best work is produced when I’m given an idea to work with 

then allowed to add my own creative input"

Objective

I have been a Graphic Designer for over 10 years in the field and have many experience in the creation of promotional materials and was last employed by Oxford University Press which is a prominent non-profit publishing company in New York City. I have been employed by other publishing firms before that and my experience span the gamut. I am currently seeking a full-time permanent position as a Graphic Designer in the Philadelphia, PA area but welcome a Freelance, Part-time or Temporary opportunity. I’m a previous NYC resident and would consider re-locating back if hired full-time employment.

I specialized in print designs on various promotional pieces but I'm also interested in Web Design and Web Graphic creation and have a limited experience which I would like to expand. I enjoy doing my work which is also a passion, please view samples of my work and if you're interested you may contact me via email. Thank You for your time!
