For the last 10 years I worked at a publishing company, ABC-CLIO, I was in charge of all the production of direct mail, product catalogs, advertising, author flyers, marketing collateral, book cover designs, & business cards. I also coordinated production of all their tradeshow graphics, I have experience with press checks, and I also designed headers for website ads. Since then, I've done freelance work for Deckers Outdoor Corp. by designing their Onboarding booklet, Product Knowledge Fit Guide, and box tags. Recently, I worked a temp position for MailMark by revising and updating Dealer Activator letters and one time mailers. Before my position at ABC-CLIO, I worked at Vessel Mfg. designing artwork for promotional waters bottles which required scanning art, doing touch-up work, making revisions and color corrections, then providing final artwork to production department. Then I worked at ACMI Corp. doing design, layout, and production of marketing materials including sell sheets, brochures, direct mail pieces, advertisements, invitations, and product catalog. I worked on multiple 'hot' projects with changing deadlines, managing time and costs to ensure they stayed within budget, on time, and met quality standards. I also coordinated production of tradeshow graphics, and assisted with revising and updating our website.
I received my A.A. degree in Graphic Design & Liberal Studies at Santa Barbara City College and also received my certificate in Graphic Design & Visual Communication through the UCSB Extension program.
