For over 27 years, I have worked in the printing industry as a Retouch Artist providing photo retouching, layouts, graphic arts and other pre-press projects using state-of-the-art methods and software. I have worked for several major color printing companies in Los Angeles who service large Advertising Agencies such as Chiat Day, Rubin Postaer, and Saatchi and Saatchi.
For the last two employers, I was a top color/retoucher creating marketing products and advertisement for magazine, computer game and entertainment industries.
I am a positive and focused worker who works well with other team members. My creativity and expertise using PhotoShop for photo retouching has been my most valued asset to my past employers.
