My first job was at age 14. I was a window graphics painter and also worked daily for Hill Bros. Const. Co after football practice (10th grade to graduation). I then went to college where I majored in advertising/design and received first place awards in fine art (painting/sculpturing) as well as advertising/design. I then moved to Memphis where I worked hands on in the print and art departments of a major company (CHAMPION AWARD, Premier and Tri-State Trophy). I did this while attending night courses at Memphis Tech. As an employee of these businesses in the Memphis area, I learned more about my craft as well as how to effectively deal with customers. After marriage and moving back home to Mississippi, I worked for several years at Mid South Graphics, which was a chain of printing companies. As they gradually failed and are no longer in business, I had little other choices to support my wife and three children, while staying in this wonderful area to raise children, so I became an upholsterer while developing my freelance business. For the past seven years, I freelanced as an illustrator, web designer, content writer and cartoonist. I've had the pleasure of working for some of the best clients all over the globe. So, if I've not bored you with the above summary, please take time to view my official resume below and thank you so very much for having the patience and interest to continue. ___________________________________________________________________________ Resume of Michael Lindsey Objective My service goals are to provide the best I have to offer with willingness to learn and adapt in areas that would ultimately enhance success for all.
