Born and raised in Southern California, I received a Certificate in Graphic Design/Visual Communications from UCLA Extension.
In California, I was employed at two boutique agencies—both full-service advertising and marketing firms. During 20+ years at Alan Herman & Associates, I found my greatest achievements were in the areas of print production, graphic design and corporate branding. As production coordinator, I successfully managed creative personnel in projects ranging from single designs to complete marketing communications programs. In 2013 I had the opportunity to help MadHaus Creative transition their web department from HTML to WordPress CMS.
After relocating to Florida in 2016, I joined the marketing team at MSC Cruises—the largest privately-owned global cruise line. As a valued member of the team, I am responsible for creating print materials including an annual 150+ page catalog, ship brochures, advertisements, flyers and various other graphics needed on board. These projects are designed from corporate templates, ensuring their compliance to company guidelines provided by the Geneva-based graphics department. The time at MSC has been the most rewarding of my career—personally and professionally.
I am known as a versatile contributor with experience in all core graphic design functions, strong problem-solving skills and the ability to make difficult decisions. I have no hesitation when it comes to learning knew applications, and stay up-to-date on the four main design components within Adobe Creative Cloud. I am punctual, ultra-dependable and quick to adapt.
