Located in the Bay Area with 15 years of retouching and ui design experience. Clients include: Sephora, CHANEL, Facebook, Adobe, M·A·C Cosmetics, Oracle, Airbnb, Uber, Tiffany & Co., David Yurman, Playboy, Kahlua, bebe, and more. As a retoucher I work on high volume - high quality imagery and GIFs for national and international digital and print publication. My UI Design experience includes creating websites, e-commerce sites, extranets, intranets, training tools, sales tools, social ad campaigns, web campaigns and print media.

 

With sub-pixel perfect workmanship and eye, I consider myself a creative perfectionist with an exceptionally high production rate, and the ability to accommodate my employer with high-quality deliverables under a strict timeframe. 

I have a great interest in joining a team where not only are my creative and management skills used to their fullest potential but also where I can grow with the company and my fellow colleagues. I have very confident leadership skills and also work extremely well within a team-dynamic. I don't back away from challenges and can work extremely well independently.
