"Always do your best." my mother and father taught me when I was young. This teaching has stayed with me throughout my life; through my schooling, my first employments, my university studies and finally in my professional career.
I am unique because my design experience spans across many industries. I am a fast learner and am as quick to adapt to company operations as i am to seek out the latest in technological advances to foster a more efficient working environment.
The sidewalk was wet and slick from one of the passing showers on Martin Luther King Boulevard that night. Of Montreal was booked to help my art class celebrate all of the pomp and circumstance earlier that day. I just remember thinking, "This can't be it. This isn't enough!" How am I considered a design professional now, when less than 24 hours ago I was a senior honors student?
After much introspection on the cool, windy Ceremonial Spring day in 2005, I so far have learned to try to accept all lessons with grace and humility while also learning to question and challenge the lesson's teacher; so that I may learn the lessons' true meanings.
Past to Success
From each of my past employments I have gained and built upon the lessons learned.
The lessons ranged anywhere from time and project management to public representation; problem solving and software development to managerial responsibilities.
I have 18 years of Customer Service, 5 years of Marketing, Advertising and Branding experience, and a 13 year professional design career.
