    about

    I'm a graphic designer and I don't know how to introduce myself on an about page without sounding awkward...

    I received an Associates Degree in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Philadelphia. From there, I dedicated all my time and energy to working in the creative field.

    I started my career as a production artist at Pure Red (formerly, G A Communications) and was soon promoted to prepress operator. There, I really got a grasp of InDesign, the technical side of the industry and how to prepare files for print. I also learned strong file management skills and how to work in a fast-paced team environment.

    Wanting to experience different sides of the industry and see where I fit in, I decided to dedicate myself to freelancing. I worked with various nonprofits and small businesses which led to some great relationships. I expanded my skill set by beginning to focus on web design. I formed an excellent understanding of the administrative side of the business and how to manage clients. Freelancing also gave me the opportunity to learn how to work alone effectively, mange my own schedule and balance my work load.

    I then found myself doing contract work, taking a position at Delaware Investments as a graphic designer. I was right back in the fast-paced corporate world. Due to legalities in the financial industry, this job has helped me become significantly more diligent during my proofing stages as well as allowing me to refine my abilities as a designer. I have sharpened my InDesign skills and feel I am highly efficient and effective. I have developed pitch books and print collateral; ranging from brochures to financial commentaries and conference & event design.

    What started as a 6 month contract with Delaware Investments has been extended for almost 3 years and is now coming to a close. Lately, I have been working with pti, nonprofit support services and building my freelance work. I am always searching for new opportunities and look forward to trying different things.
