I am currently an employee to Gap inc. for 5 years now and a graduate of the Art Institute of New York City, class of 2012. I majored in Graphic Design. I'm looking to obtain a position that inquires my skills and progress in the field. I graduated from Fiorello H. LaGuardia high school for music, art and the performing arts in 2008, with a background in fine arts. Sketching, photography, drawing, photo retouching, color theory, painting, printmaking, and concept development skills are a few of my additional skills. Overall I am in love with branding and its entire process.
