Moorestown, NJ, US



I have a bachelor's degree in Communications Design from Pratt Art Institute in Brooklyn, which is widely known as one of the top art schools in the country. At Pratt, I had the great privilege of studying under some of the top artists in the graphic design/advertisement field. Along with my strong academic credentials, I have strong work experience through my time at Panzano and Partners, a Graphic Design Company in Moorestown, NJ, Gyro Worldwide Advertising in Philadelphia, and my current job as a graphic designer of advertising, merchandise, and apparel at Playboy Enterprises in New York City. My experience has allowed me to work in a variety of segments in print and electronic media. As you can see in my resume, I have a strong knowledge of a variety of job-relevant design software including Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Quark. I also have excellent drawing and photography skills, as well as a strong mockup experience. I have a strong ability to juggle multiple tasks at once, work independently or collaborate with others, and meet tight deadlines.
