I am submitting my resume outlining my work experience in prepress and photographic retouching

I have extensive Photoshop experience, and have worked in a high volume production environment doing color and retouching for numerous catalog companies and ad agencies for over 20 years.

Over the years I have done work for such clients as TJX, Stride Rite, New Balance, and others, involving everything from challenging photo-compositing to basic color enhancement and retouching.

Current freelance work includes readying images for the web and print for Timberland, which involves product matching as well as creating alternate color versions.

In addition to Photoshop, I am experienced with Lightroom, InDesign and Quark.

Please see my resume, next page. Some examples of my work can be seen at

Thank you again for your interest in seeing my portfolio, and I hope to hear from you in the future.
