My name is Wes Joseph Duncan. I graduated from California State University Northridge with a Bachelor of Arts degree in fine art, with an emphasis in graphic design, in 2008. In the years preceding the completion of my post-secondary education, I assumed the role of shop manager of a sheet metal fabrication shop, which required exceptional organizational skills, effective planning and management of shop equipment and staff. For the three years following college, I worked as the pre–press director for H3 Publications Inc.; during which I further developed my skills communicating with marketers, designers, and vendors via telephone and email to ensure timely delivery of ad files. In addition, I assumed the responsibility of addressing and troubleshooting problematic publication files while also ensuring timely release of the publication. In December of 2012, I completed a certificate in Business Administration through California State University Northridge in order to enhance my education and gain a greater knowledge of business, marketing, finance and law.
