I am a graphic designer/illustrator/painter, just about everything creative. Please see my resume:

I am an artist who is very engaged in the business of graphic design for print and web. I can design my way out of a paper bag. As the cartoon Pink Panther would say . . . well, he doesn't say much. He's more into the visual aspects of things, along with an interpretive, musical background. I rather dig his directive, his thought process, his vibe.

Digital and Traditional Skills:

Highly adept in Adobe CS6 (InDesign, PhotoShop, Illustrator, Acrobat) and QuarkXPress 7 design software, Illustration, Photography. Possess working knowledge of MicroSoft Word, PowerPoint, Adobe Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Flash. Also well-versed in mock up creation, interpersonal interaction, copywriting, grammar, problem solving (usually in the digital and jigsaw puzzle realm.)
