I am a graduate of the Graphic Design program at The Art Institute of California, Los Angeles. There, as a freelance designer and at my current place of employment, I have gained valuable experience designing advertising and marketing material including brochures, logos, posters, advertisements, websites and booklets. I am proficient with industry standard software including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Quark. I also have a working knowledge of photography fundamentals as well as motion and video editing programs such as Flash, After Effects and Final Cut. I take great pride in the design work I create and always strive to deliver an effective, focused, and on-target product. I am an outgoing, reliable and hard-working designer who can work well in a collaborative team environment or individually. My career goals are to continue to learn and grow as a graphic designer while utilizing my creativity, knowledge, education and people skills to benefit my employer.
