I am a Graphic designer with 11 years experience in print design. I have collaborated on projects with clients such as Channel 5, Energy Investors Fund, Newton Wellesley Hospital, and International Car Parts. I have a strong passion for design, a desire for excellence, and take a great sense of pride in providing a product that exceeds the client’s expectations. At my previous position, I established multiple systems and contacts to increase productivity as well as profit. When working I treat everyone as a partner, expecting everyone to give and receive the same desire for excellence. I work hard to produce high end products, solve problems when they arise, doing whatever it takes to make a finish date, and my values allow me to build trust with clients, vendors, and co-workers by holding to these values. In July 2014, the Print Centre closed, so I took this as an opportunity to expand my skill set, and went back to Mass Bay Community College and in May 2015 received my Web Design Certificate. With a new passion for web design I am looking to bring my high work values and unique design to my new career.
