From my experience as the Art & Production Manager for Cincinnati Magazine, I oversaw the production of over 30 publications, including Cincinnati Magazine, Cincinnati Wedding and Cincinnati Baby Guide. Offering 12 years of experience in graphic design, production and customer service demonstrating computer proficiency, excellent problem solving skills and the ability to follow through with projects, I believe I would be an asset to any organization. I would love to be a part of an organization that has a high level of professionalism, innovative concepts and outstanding reputation. I am a highly self-motivated and goal-oriented professional committed to pursuing a long-term career with a dynamic organization.

I graduated from the International Academy of Design & Technology in Chicago in June 2007 with a Bachelor degree in Visual Communications with a focus in Advertising Design. My graphic design and production experience includes working in the publishing industry, working with a heating and air conditioning company, consulting company, printing company, ad agencies and a gift-industry company. Before my design career, I have experience in the fields of Office Administration, Customer Service and Hospitality. I have an organized, hard-working nature and really enjoy working in a team environment. Read Less
