I have been working in the graphic design field for over 7 years and have had the privilege to design and complete a number of projects for clients. I have had the opportunity to experience different areas of design and fabrication. My experience in design has taught me how to move quickly with short deadlines and accept criticism from managers and clients. This has helped me to approach all job situations with a good attitude. I work well with others but I am also self motivated and focused to work alone to complete projects.
