I'm a recent graduate of Westwood College with a Bachelors of Science degree in Web Design & Multimedia. I did some web work and illustration for 6 months for a surge protection company. That little taste of the business really gave me the desire to put my all into this. I am currently unemployed and looking for freelance work and/or actual job placement. I have started a graphic t-shirt company on the side call Arius Hyll and have been doing local business over the past 7 months.

Expanding my experience in the graphic design field while improving my skills and abilities. Interested in a position that will allow me to showcase my talents in web design and corporate identity.
Over three years of experience with Adobe products primarily their Master Collection, e.g. Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Photoshop and Flash. While enrolled in college I experience deadlines while designing and creating multiple websites, signage and marketing material. In the process professional experience was acquired through freelancing. Extensive knowledge for software expands from the PC to MAC platform, e.g. Office 2010, Windows 7, OS X, Siebel, and TSYS. Overall being able to communicate and build relationships has allowed for exceptional growth.
