My name is Erica Benjamin. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and have been interested in Graphic Design for many years now. I have experience in Administrative roles, but in the last few years my focus and job descriptions have been more Graphic Design oriented. I love Graphic Design and I am constantly reading and looking to improve my skills.
