Freelance Graphic Designer, September 2009 – Present
Working with a number of brands, agencies, and startups, I provide design and creative solutions for many projects in digital marketing, web and traditional media.

The versatility of freelancing has allowed me to advance my skills in many different areas; always challenging, testing and pushing myself to higher standards of excellence.

Production Manager, April 2007 – December 2011

All while overseeing the fiscal and operational activities of the department.

As part of the marketing department, I headed a small team to design and produce all collateral materials for national marketing and branding efforts.
Graphic Designer/Production Assistant, March 2004 – May 2005

S. was one of my biggest “adversaries” in college. I mean that in the best way possible as his work and dedication drove me to work harder at my degree. He is a very quick learner and seeks the devils in the details to get a solid comprehension of his projects. After college we collaborated on several projects and many times I was able to reach out to S. to help me out of a tight deadline.

I have recommended him to several other colleagues and associates and I have never received anything but amazing praise about him. I consistently recommend him because he is responsible, reliable and trustworthy. He has great work ethic and superb talent. You will find S. highly motivated and to have a great attitude to add to any team!

S. has been an excellent resource for the International Trademark Association over the last few years. He is a great designer who is able to turn work around quickly under very tight deadlines. I've worked with him both virtually and in house. He handles both situations equally well. S. is a great talent and I highly recommend him!
