My name is Maxi, and if I can describe myself, I would probably say, "optimistically impulsive," but that is mostly what my friends and family say about me. I am a recent graduate at Cal State University Dominguez Hills, with my degree in Graphic Design with at least three years of experience as a freelance designer. In the 5+ years that I have been a student, I have gained experience in the classroom and have used it in the professional field. I was a Community Service Officer at CSUDH's University Housing; I was responsible for moderating traffic, writing down shift/emergency reports and hourly rounds throughout the dorms. I was also their graphic designer, creating their even flyers for both school and housing and for their e-mail messages to residents as well.
I have some years of experience tutoring students. I have in the past assisted my classmates when I was both in middle school and high school, as well as college, with their homework, and have showed them basic skills in art. I was employed with CSU Dominguez Hills EOP Office to be their artist and their peer mentor for the incoming freshman entering as first time college students to the university, and I have also tutored some of my classmates and other students informally in graphic design.
Overall, I am a self-starter with an eye for detail; I like to keep things simple and straight to the point but I'm not afraid of taking a risk and accept most challenges that come my way. I also enjoy reading comic books, watching anime as well as movies (I find horror and suspense more enjoyable). I also draw my own comic books and characters in my free time; mostly for practice.
Feel free to contact me if you need my help or just want some tips.
I have take Prepress at my university as a graduation requirement. I understand the basics of inDesign and have used them to create booklets and pamphlets for class and for my internship. I have created a song lyrics booklet, an informational on the history of the iPhone, and a children's booklet for a project at school and have created educational documents and booklets for my internship using inDesign.
I have taken Beginning Art, 2D and 3D Composition as prerequisites to my major. I have also been drawing ever since I was a child so I am self taught with some education background in middle, high school and college. I was also given private lessons by a retired animation artist from Hanna/Barbera Studios to improve my drawing skills and better my human anatomy. Before starting a project on the computer, I will sketch it out first to layout my plan. I also draw during my free time and usually I scan my drawings to my laptop and add the digital touches on Photoshop or Illustrator. I can also sketch on my computer and add the finishing touches on Photoshop and create a digital painting.
Graphic Design is my major at Cal State University Dominguez Hills and I will receive my Bachelors in December. I have experience working as a freelance designer as well as working for a company. I also have an internship in Graphic Design and I am currently the main artist partnered up with Mario Williams.
I am a recent graduate at Cal State University Dominguez Hills, with my degree in Graphic Design. I am a self starter and self motivated. As a result, when I was first introduced to a Macintosh, I easily played with it and explored its many contents. When I entered the university, I had to learn to use all the Adobe programs using a Mac. I learned the different keyboard commands and how to navigate and organize all my files. Learning all these tricks, I managed to translate Mac language to PC. I would help my friends learn the Mac and translate the keyboard commands to the PC and eventually help my boyfriend understand his Macbook Pro when he stopped going to his Apple classes.
I have been using Microsoft Publisher ever since I was a high school student. I was a JROTC cadet and in charge of creating a newsletter reporting everything the battalion did from school events to school visits and even city and state competitions. After graduating high school and entering college, I first used it to create flyers and other forms of literature because I didn't have Photoshop or any of the other design programs. Publisher was my first design program until I started taking my major classes in my third year of college. During my third year, some of my friends needed help learning Publisher since they didn't have access to Photoshop so I helped them out free of charge (or I got a free lunch out of it) to create small flyers.
I took a painting class as a prerequisite for my major. I have also taken an Arts an Crafts class for non-majors in order to learn the basics of art, especially in painting. I know how to mix colors and I can paint in oil, acrylic, and watercolor. I can also paint on Photoshop and create digital paintings on my laptop using what I learned painting on a canvas away from the computer.
I have taken Digital Photography as a prerequisite for my major. I have also taken Advanced Photography for more advanced techniques (not a required class) and understand photography more. I also learned the basics of photography when I was a high school student at the Media Aid Center and have professional experience within the field. I have been hired to do the professional photography for events for my family's events and have been paid for my services. I have also been hired outside my family to do the engagement photos for a relative of one of my friends and I have been paid for my services as well. I have also done portraits for my boyfriend and his family and have also been allowed to participate in taking photos for the Port of Los Angeles.

Great Tutor — Maxi is very good at what she does - photography and computer. She keeps my daughter's attention because she has passion for the subjects at hand. She has a good eye and caught some of my daughter's photos (which were incredible by the way) when I almost disregarded them. Maxi and my daughter get along very well. My daughter is 19 years old and she is learning fast. The hours are never wasted with ...
