A passionate designer who lives and breathes graphic design; a typography lover who pays close attention to detail. I enjoy the challenge of organizing complex, tangled information and transforming them into visually attractive graphics under tight deadlines. I am a fast, voracious learner who is proficient on both MAC and PC: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, After Effects, Dreamweaver, Acrobat, Keynote & MS Office Suite.
