I started out at an Advertising Agency as work-study while attending a community college. I quickly learned blind-typesetting, process camera work & paste-up! I've continued staying up-to-date in Adobe CS & like software. I won't try to claim I know everything, but I'm the one people nearly always looked to for guidance. If anything, that I'm not afraid to find the right answer!
