Welcome to my design portfolio!

Creativity can be defined as one's ability to turn imagination and original ideas into reality. 

Over the past twenty years I have worked as a desktop publisher in both personal and professional settings. My most recent job allowed me the opportunity to work as an in-house designer in addition to my primary administrative responsibilities. During my 11+ years with my previous employer I successfully designed, developed, and implemented numerous marketing materials and promotional publications for a variety of media outputs. While my on-the-job experience has allowed me to develop a well-rounded skill set, I excel at:

  • Creating designs and layouts in multiple Microsoft Office Suite applications, especially Publisher and Power Point.
  • Designing, editing, and modifying graphics, publications, and PDF’s in Adobe Creative Cloud applications, including Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.
  • Proficiency in time management, multi-tasking, and problem-solving skills.

In both personal and professional settings, I have proven myself to be a dependable, creative individual who is detail oriented, well organized, and able to work independently or collaboratively on multiple projects and assignments. I take pride in the quality and efficiency of my work, having never missed a deadline. Additionally, I possess excellent interpersonal skills, am team-oriented, and am willing to “go the extra mile”. 

 In addition to my experience and personal qualities, I have a strong passion for design and am extremely enthusiastic about pursuing an opportunity to contribute creativity and value to a client's desktop publishing, or graphic design, needs.
