Résume Portfolio Contact

I've worked in graphic design, in one form or another, for almost a decade—actually, a little over 9 years, but who's counting? My career has given me experience in both consumer and business-to-business advertising for many different industries. I've created marketing and promotional materials for everything from vacation spots to tulip bulbs. From lawyers to exterminators. And from metal finishing machinery to pierogies. I've worked on projects designing: print ads, outdoor boards, collateral materials, annual reports, logos and identity materials, web ads, packaging and food labels...just to name a few.

I "built my chops" as a Graphic Designer, working in the pre-press department of a printing and publishing company. There, I gained most of my technical knowledge and proficiency on industry standard software like: QuarkXpress, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and Macromedia Freehand—all Macintosh platform, of course. And learned (sometimes the hard way) how NOT to make many of the mistakes that strike fear in the hearts of pre-press technicians.

Later, I moved on to work as an Art Director | Graphic Designer for an advertising agency here in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
