I have been a Graphic Designer for more than 17 years (including 8 years of pre-press experience). I am based in California but I also have worked with companies in USA and around the world such as Canada, France, Italy and Sweden.

I started working for a "trade print shop" where I was a "One-Person Department" fixing almost 90% of different types of the files provided by the customer to meet press specifications, and also outputting and stripping negatives to make plates for different types of presses. This experience guarantees the design will be press-ready, minimizing lead time and costs.

My education and experience are assets that allow me to work closely with my clients to solve their graphic needs whilst thinking technically how the job is going to be produced. I offer excellent work, on time, and with a positive attitude. I am always available during the project and I respond to calls and messages quickly. My clients are very happy with my services, my creativity and the professional way in which I conduct business. I am proud to have a reputation of being reliable and consistent.

All my projects show my creativity and imagination as well as my ability to follow instructions and respect my client's branding. I strive to resolve conflicts in a positive direction, and speak up when I have something productive to say.
