Over the course of my career I have applied my graphic design skills to promote consumer awareness of brand recognition in a number of industries. These include public and auto trade environments for The Chrysler Group, Ford Motor Company, Saturn and BMW. I have also worked on many projects for companies such as Sunrise Medical Supplies, Sullivan-Schein Dental, and event marketing venues for country singer Tim McGraw. Other examples of my versatility include print media and flash development.

Senior Graphic Designer
Hired as a graphic project designer my responsibilities have continually grown with my collective skill set earning the title of senior graphic designer. My strengths are found in my ability to absorb and organize large amounts of information quickly and in turn develop concepts that effectively meet client needs. I pride myself in the ability to present concepts passionately and respond to client input quickly providing spot-on design solutions. As a motivated graphic designer, I excel in situations that allow me to be self-managed. While at GPJ I was fully responsible from graphic design inception through project completion. Responsibilities include: creating design, managing multiple graphic projects simultaneously, counseling client with creative direction, coordinating estimations and budget details with account teams, engineering, and sales departments.
