Summary

As a mature, eager, positive and ambitious graphic design professional, I desire a mid to senior level position that would enable me to use my graphic design knowledge and skills in an enthusiastic environment. With over 12 years of design experience, my goal is to work within a team that mutually respects, supports and encourages our continual creative and professional growth.

I have the ability to assess a company’s/client’s design needs, provide samples, make appropriate changes and complete work in a timely manner. I thrive on following branding guidelines, yet confident to be able to offer suggestions where considerations might need to be challenged.

Equal parts creative and analytical, I thrive on designing marketing materials or collateral that meet or exceed objectives and expectations. Not only do I crave the metrics and analytical data, but I want to "make it pretty" with charts and graphics.
