To shortly describe myself and what I can offer, is a professional who possesses solid graphic design and management skills. I am also able to handle a heavy volume of work in a fast paced production environment. I possess a strong understanding of layouts, color separations, and typography with an eye for design. In addition I believe I am the diligent, detailed minded, energetic and flexible individual you are looking for that will strive for the growth of the company. I am accustom to deadlines and dated production, which has resulted in the ability to multi-task, organize, schedule and work efficiently as part of a team, as well as develop a fast, precise production rate on all of my projects. If given the opportunity to work with you, I will look forward each day of working towards our common goal of success.
