I’m currently a Graphic Production Artist at the Acorn Newspapers - a weekly newspaper based in Agoura Hills. My duties include designing promotional materials for local merchants, in both print and web formats, newspaper page layout, website design and maintenance (www.beyondtheacorn.net), as well as illustrating. I have a strong background in project management, print, web design, and fine arts -- I’m looking to move into a position where I can utilize these skills as well as the experience I have gained from working in publications. I’m a quick study, organized, and driven.
I am an energetic self-starter, detail oriented, and work well independently or in a team environment. I am a proactive and creative thinker with a strong work ethic. I have experience successfully managing small teams. I have extensive design experience, am capable and quickly learn new skills and programs. I am able to oversee multiple projects simultaneously and rapidly adapt to challenging situations.
