SUMMARY 15+ years experience as a senior graphic designer, print lead and

PowerPoint/Keynote expert. Print collateral highlights: invitations, sell sheets,

brochures, booklets, CD/DVD packaging, and oversize signage. Advanced expertise

designing high-end PowerPoint decks. I also have a special talent for designing RFP

proposals in MS Word and PowerPoint. Seeking part-time and contract work.

Having worked many years for high profile corporate clients, I understand and

appreciate this hectic and often exciting business of corporate graphic design. I

know what it is to work hard. When I accept a project I commit myself to a high

degree of artistic excellence and technical proficiency. I’m professional and

courteous with everyone and I frequently manage my work beyond a client’s

expectations. When you need a presentation expert, a print designer, or MS Word

guru, I’m a good guy to have around.
