    Graphic Designer at Chicago Wolves

    Itasca, IL

Currently working as a Graphic Designer for the Chicago Wolves professional hockey team, though I hardly consider it work. Being able to combine my passion for design and love for the sport of hockey for a career is more than I can ever ask for. I am a graduate from Robert Morris University in Chicago with a Bachelor’s in Graphic Design. Specialties: Brand identity and logo design, photo editing and retouching, understanding of design principles, print production, website page layouts and development, advertisements, brochures and other print design projects, conducting design research and provide critical analysis.
