I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Applied Media Arts with concentrations in Graphic Design and Computer Animation from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Also, I have completed the Web Design Diploma program at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. From October 2006 to October 2008 I was working at Eaglesoft Tees, a Print and T-shirt design business, to gain experience.
After completing the Web Design program I was hired at Impact Innovative Products, LLC to design all of their graphic material and update their website. In February 2009 I accepted a position at PPG Industries, Inc. in Pittsburgh, PA. In particular, I worked for their Architectural Coatings division as a Web Development Contractor.
In May 2011 I accepted a position at CombineNet, Inc., also in Pittsburgh, as their sole Web Development & Graphic Design Specialist. My role at CombineNet was to design marketing material for web, print, and video as well as maintain their current website while working on redesigning the website. Also, I managed Search Engine Optimization, Social Media, and email marketing.
In May 2013 I accepted a position at Quaker Steak & Lube – Best Wings USA, Inc. as the Digital Media Manager as a shared resource for both the Marketing and IT departments. My role in the Marketing department is to manage and develop all of QS&L’s Websites, Search Engine Optimization, Google Business Solutions (Analytics, Adwords, Locations, Google+), Support Social Media and Email Marketing. My role in IT is to manage the Promotional Coupon Code Database, Online Ordering Menu Database and Guest Loyalty Program using NCR Aloha POS Systems.
My strength as a designer is being creative. I am a highly motivated individual, who is very goal oriented, strong at multitasking and excellent at brainstorming. I am able to communicate well, and I also possess fine writing skills. I am able to manage my time well without supervision. I have worked in groups quite often and I work well with others. There have been projects that I worked on as a team member and there were other projects that I worked on as a manager. In both scenarios, my problem solving skills have been a strong asset.
