A GRAPHIC DESIGNER
I have always taken an interest in art, ever since I was a young child. I enjoyed school projects that allowed me to show my creative and artistic talents.
Today, I carry much of that attitude into the projects I work on, whether it be simple documentation layout or corporate branding.
I am also
A USSF SOCCER REFEREE & INSTRUCTOR
After being a long time soccer player (25+ years), and coaching my kids in recreational leagues, I thought it was time to be the one in charge of the games :)
Since 2004, I have been a youth soccer referee. Since 2008, I certified to referee high school and jr. high school soccer in Texas. Now I referee adult leagues, as well as continuing my youth refereeing and instructing new participants who want to become a soccer referee. It keeps me young at heart.
I consider myself a multi-talented individual. During my summers when in college, I worked various clerical and administrative positions because of the skills I possessed.
As I began to enter the work industry with a college degree behind me, finding the ideal graphic jobs were not always easy. Like most of us, we take whatever jobs we can to survive, building on our existing skills and talents.
The word of mouth around my work, efficiency, organization and attention to detail resulted in the start of holligraphics.
I started my art education at C.S. Mott Community College in Flint, Michigan, for one year. Finished both semesters on the Dean's Honor List.
The following year, I transferred to the University of Michigan School of Art & Design in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where I eventually graduated with a Bachlelors degree in Fine Arts.
As stated in my work experience, I have a wide variety of skills that have allowed me to work a number of different jobs; ranging from administrative to technical, including creative design.
I enjoy being challenged with new ideas and opportunities that help lead me to developing effective solutions for my clients.
