I am a graphic designer with extensive experience in print design and growing experience with digital design. Currently I work in the bids and proposal graphic design field. My past experience includes video and film production and post production as well as non design related skill sets.
I am always endeavoring to expand my knowledge base and skill sets, both from a design and technical standpoint. My technical skill development focus keys on the Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator software packages, with secondary focus on InDesign, Acrobat, Premiere Pro, Media Encoder and After Effects. My current efforts include expanding my knowledge of motion graphics development and web design. To improve my graphic design and technical skills I utilize many resources, including reading books, articles and other knowledge sources, working with tutorials and pursuing other educational avenues. In addition, I am currently obtaining a bachelors degree in graphic design with graduation slated for early 2018.
A diverse career path has provided me with a wide variety of applicable skills and a distinct ability to adapt to new situations, positions, industries and challenges while finding creative and enterprising solutions to unique obstacles.
