I have traveled down two seperate roads in my life. The first road engaged in everything I need to know and do to work as a Graphic Designer. Over 25 years of Graphic Design knowledge of design principles and techniques. Full understanding of generating concepts, layouts, and typography. I also have the same amount of time devoted to Apple computers, hardware and software, and fully capable knowledge in Adobe software including, CS5. This time has also been devoted to working in multimedia, creating web design, and landing pages, animations using Flash, motion graphics and video, using Premiere and Final Cut Pro. My projects are varied and wide. Over the years I developed a discipline of working with quick turnaround and stylized perfection. I take my work very seriously and work thoroughly to get the job done right, and on time.
The second road has been subsidizing my life and my career interest in a job in the grocery business. I have become a model employee and I am now a Manager of my department. I have developed a respect for my job and a solid work ethic. I also have developed excellent time management skills, a high degree of organizational skills, and experience in the business to make my job more manageable and productive.
One road perpetuated the other, with one goal in mind. To land a position as a Graphic Designer and do what it takes to contribute to a company, and be determined to create quality work.
All that I have done are important life skills, career skills and personal skills that have given me the confidence that I can be the best person that I intend to be.
