SUMMARY

I am energized by people and thrive off of group scenarios. I have good communication skills, working with associates and customers has always been an enjoyable endeavor. I look forward to each encounter, and learn from them.

I look forward to the challenges and attack obstacles head on. I am exhilarated by a changing and dynamic work environment. I adapt quickly to my environment, change makes me stronger.I enjoy dynamic and creative organization solutions. When faced with a problem I investigate all possible outcomes before selecting the appropriate solution. I enjoy the process that leads successful and innovative results.

I have a passion for layout, color, texture and type. I enjoy fresh design and new fonts. My knowledge of both print and design makes me a desirable and marketable commodity.
