San Diego based graphic designer working with companies since 2000.


Resume

I’m a graphic designer with the talent and experience to create top-notch solutions for everyday design challenges. As a designer and illustrator I have the ability to strategically and successfully design work that “just makes sense.”

Not only do I have a strong understanding of color, typography and composition, but my work ethic and attention to detail is impeccable. I can multi-task like crazy, communicate effectively with clients and vendors and manage projects from start to finish.

Junior Designer at The Times of Acadiana

2001

Junior Graphic Designer

Hired right out of college in Louisiana for the weekly alternative press paper, I worked with a very talented creative team of six, early in my career. That team effort molded my career for the next 11 years. I still love the team aspect of getting everyone on board with an idea. It gets done much quicker and more efficient. I got to collaborate on covers and had my own section weekly to design. I was the only paginator and went to press checks at the printing plant weekly.
