Joe René Guerrero
As an artist familiar with multiple disciplines, I have cultivated a broad set of both generalized and specific skills that allow me to approach a project with a critical eye for lighting, color, sound, framing, set design, and talent direction. I have a positive attitude, a naturally fun disposition, and am mature and professional with strong verbal and written communication skills cultivated from years of service- and client-oriented work experience.
I love learning new skills and have a strong work ethic. I pride myself on punctuality, multitasking, am a hands-on team player, a dependable creative leader, and am self-managed.
