Riverside, NJ, US



As a sole-proprietor, I developed many traits that will make me an ideal employee. I'm a quick study, self-starter, independent, production-minded, and take direction very well.  Over the years, I've developed strong communication and people skills through work, school activities and community volunteer projects. Those skills, combined with over 25 years experience as a graphic designer, make me confident that I would be a great fit with any company.
