ABOUT

I am a graphic designer and technical illustrator with experience designing for both print and digital media. I have worked in marketing / publications / training departments as a technical illustrator / graphic designer where I managed the company branding, created catalogs, brochures, sales manuals, posters, advertisements, info graphics and various other forms of marketing materials including large format printing. I also experience with interactive GUI's, UX design and as well as database forms and front end design.

I also have extensive experience working corporate events like Trade Shows where I was responsible for every step of the process from the design of the both, creation and printing of booth graphics, logistics, and on-site set-up and break-down.

In addition I have also worked in training departments where I managed the distance learning, administered the company LMS and was responsible for the creation and implementation of learning modules.

More recently I have worked freelance for print shops doing print production were I prepare customer artwork to be printed, vector and CMYK color separations, registration, clean-up or recreation of customer provided work as well as original creation of graphic material for print such as business cards, brochures, signs, banners, logos, and designs to be printed on shirts, hats, patches or to be cut in vinyl.

I am organized, work well in groups, in high pressure fast pace environments, and will go the extra mile to meet nonnegotiable deadlines.
