November 2008

I am a Graphic Artist, as reflected in my working résumé, however, I also have experience and background in working with dogs and their owners/handlers. Over the years, I have shared my home with many dogs, cats and birds. Both backgrounds are included in this résumé.

I am interested in ft/pt positions or freelance work in the Denver/Metro and Front Range area of Colorado, in the following categories: Desktop Publishing, Computer Graphics, Freelance Designing. I am also interested in Pet industry positions.

My background includes:

Some information which is not actually reflected in my résumé:
• I am experienced in grammatical and typographical proof reading.
• I am comfortable working with people one on one and explaining how to prepare their graphic files for clean and easy output.
• I have experience in working with business owners, tracking product and advertising materials.
• I have an ability to learn something, then turn around and teach it.
• I am comfortable talking to groups of people.
• I have six years experience as a sales rep., and daily deliveries of product (newspapers), into stores on a route.
