Work History

I’m an experienced graphic designer with over 10 years of freelance work. I’m looking for a company in San Francisco that can offer me a fun, lucrative environment, while keeping me busy and challenging and broadening my set of skills. I love all forms of art, whether it’s designing the perfect logo, or sketching illustration commissions, and I like to think that comes out in what I do.

Education: October, 1999 – May, 2002 Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Graphic Design, AA Skills: I specialize in clean, simple design that conveys a message as clearly as possible, while still preserving the importance of artistic flair. Communicating a client’s vision into a finished product that they are enthusiastic about is one of the things I enjoy most. My illustration skill, other than being constantly applied to my design work, often finds other uses such as story-boards, illustration commissions, and large-scale paintings (murals, signage). The main emphasis of my personal art has a solid foundation in figure-drawing studies. Technically, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are my main areas of expertise, as well as Adobe GoLive, Poser, and most basic office software. I’d like to learn more Flash and Dreamweaver. I’m well-versed with Windows operating systems, comfortable with Macs, and familiar with Linux. In addition to my freelance experience, I have over 10 years of service industry experience. Being a bartender has been immensely educational in careful communication and social dynamics.
