I am a dedicated, meticulous and hard-working graphic designer specializing in publication and packaging
design and prepress. I am well versed in the intricacies of typography, image selection, touch-up and color
correction for large and small-scale projects. I've designed materials for clients such as Comcast, The New
England Dairy Association, Cabot, Kroger, and The National AIDS Fund. My attention to detail is off the
charts and I love the challenge of creating high-quality work under a tight deadline. References are available
upon request.
