Over the last 10 years I’ve developed a wide range of abilities and knowledge related to the design / communication / interaction fields. Chief among these skills would be cooperating with others in large or small groups. Cooperation requires keeping a flexible outlook and being open to life long learning from one’s peers, employers, clients, friends and family. As the Art Director of the 300+ plus page quarterly, Zingmagazine, I worked along side established artists, and fashion designers and their representatives transforming their incredibly varied projects into a printed format. I stayed on for 5 years in this highly collaborative atmosphere honing my conceptual and layout skills.
