Summary

Career Summary: 

I have over 24 years experience in the field of graphic design. Over the years I have met with clients, sketched out ideas for marketing, and done problem solving. The majority of my referrals were based on my quick turn around time. I have taken on management positions in the past for magazine companies. I have ordered printing for many clients, due to the fact that they don’t want to be bothered with the details of how graphics are printed.

My work history includes magazine layout, coupon design, menu layout, wedding announcements, save the date cards, business cards, brochures, flyers, billboards, vehicle wraps, backlit signs, vinyl signs, logo designs, pre-press for printers, embroidery for apparel, T-shirts, 3D signs, plastic cards, doorhangers, books, package design, etc…  I also have some experience with designing pieces for web.  I am proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator.
