Digital Retoucher-Prepress Tech looking for Work
Associates Degree in Art and Advertising Design,
City University of New York
New York City College of Technology
My experience in both the creative (digital artist-retoucher) and production (prepress) areas of the graphic arts field has broadened my range so I can visualize a project from its conceptual stage, through its creation, and on to its final result. I hope to still expand my knowledge of the digital field and work in an environment that allows me to continue doing the work that I enjoy. I feel that with my experience I can be an asset to many companies. If you look at my website you can see the various projects that I have worked on over the past years.
