I was a recognized talented artist back in high school. I studied Painting and Printmaking for 4 years, acquiring a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree in 1985. After travelling during the summer of 1985, I attended Graduate School at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, Wisconsin. I earned a Master of Arts degree in 1987 and after college worked a variety of day and evening jobs. I am currently a Graphic Designer working for a banner and flag business in Manhattan. I am offering my expertise in Adobe Print software. I have years of experience using Adobe's products for printing. I am also a very skilled drummer and percussionist.
