Pasadena, CA 91107
I strive to do the best work I can in everything I do. Having years of agency and studio experience as a
Retoucher and Finisher has allowed me to be very proficient and streamlined. I’ve worked with a variety of
clients ranging from entertainment, gaming, fashion, beauty, high-end jewelry, automotive, branding, travel,
real estate and industrial. One of my greatest experiences was Retouching on set for apple’s iPhone 3 and first
generation iPad for Media Arts Lab at a photoshoot.
My experience involves:
Knowledge of pre-press procedures
How to set up labeled layered Photoshop and Illustrator files, provide bleeds, color correction, etc.
Ability to take verbally articulated concepts and represent them visually
Strong organizational and time management skills
Able to manage multiple on-going projects and setting priorities based on deadlines
Ability to communicate clearly and effectively with co-workers and vendors
Create ideas and concepts, presenting them to clients and working through various rounds of revisions
Social Media Marketing (see Special Skills on page 2 for details)
Work well with others and under pressure
