ABOUT ME

As an ex-patriot Senior Graphic Designer currently working in Barcelona, Spain,  my extensive experience includes positions as Direct Marketing Manager/Retention Manager as well as Web Designer. I am highly organized and adept at trafficking projects and meeting tight deadlines.  I strive to push the limits in concepts and executions and work closely with marketing teams to execute brands over multiple platforms to create unique customer/brand experiences. I have well-honed skills for online accessibility, usability and SEO issues as well as experience in dealing with multi-faceted cross browser issues. I also have experience in building HTML templates for business and consumer driven sites and email campaigns.  I am currently seeking opportunities to challenge and continue to grow my skills both in management and design.
