Summary

In a short period of time my career has taken off to encompass more ground than I could have ever imagined. I am fortunate that I was challenged from the beginning with such a wide range of clients needs, necessitating constant growth in my experience, skills and knowledge base. Although I have an immense appreciation of my formal education, I have very quickly realized the need to constantly stay on top of all aspects of this constantly evolving industry and the importance of learning through experience. I believe in keeping my work fresh and up to date both visually and technically.

Although currently the Adobe Creative Suite satisfies my creative design needs, whether web, print or video, I also realize that there are countless other tools available. The industry is constantly progressing, and as it does new tools become available. I believe it critical to remain alert to all new developments, and am always ready to learn and implement them.

Since begining my career in graphic design I have advanced my skills to include web design, along with video production, editing and animation.

I believe at this point I have become a very versatile designer. If you haven’t already, please take a look at my portfolio page to see some examples from the past. I am constantly learning new skills and will continue to learn as the opportunities present themselves.

Thank You!
