With significant experience in Photoshop and Color along with the role it plays in the conversion to print. I feel I can be an asset to your organization!

Recently I have been contracting with General Mills as a Retouching/Color Correction as a Digital Color/Image Specialist in the photography department. Before these duties I was a lead prepress technician for many years in the printing industry. This involved a variety of functions including color correction, RGB and CMYK color space issues.

It would be my pleasure to meet with you to further discuss how my background and experience would bring immediate value to your organization. My resume is on page 2 of this document for you to review. Thank you for your time and consideration.
