During my seventeen years in the graphic and web design industries, I have handled a diverse array of advertising projects with dedication, creativity and skill. During my time at the Philadelphia Housing Authority, Mancino, Myth Masters, and Treasure Signs, I was instrumental in bringing the brand's marketing goals to fruition, as well as developing products and representing the company at events and functions. As my resume demonstrates, I am a reliable and imaginative employee who has experience in design for web and print, solid business acumen, and has superior communication and multitasking abilities.
