I am a graphic designer with 4+ years of professional experience. I recently relocated to Salt Lake City from Sacramento, CA, where I worked at an alternative weekly newspaper designing advertisements and custom publications. I have worked with clients like AARP, Habitat for Humanity and various state agencies. I am a team player and enjoy collaborating with my teammates and marketing and sales staff.
