With over 15 years experience, I bring to the table excellent skills in strategizing, conceptualizing and designing, as well as client service and project management. I work with clients to produce business support and marketing materials that promote products, programs, events and services. Projects have included advertisements, brochures, magazines, media kits, annual reports, newsletters and web banners/ads, as well as logo design and branding for the financial industry, trade associations, nonprofits and small businesses. My initiative and flexibility allow me to competently manage multiple projects from concept through completion, often under tight deadlines.
I offer technical expertise in image retouching, print production and digital prepress, as well as InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Powerpoint and Acrobat.
