My education and current internship experience has provided me with the necessary skills to succeed in the design world. My experience has also helped me to develop into an excellent communicator. I have dealt with difficult clients, learned how to be successful working in a team and have proven the ability to diagnose and solve problems. My dedication and passion for new media design was displayed by working two jobs and designing into the late hours while pursuing my education. I understand the seriousness of a deadline and meeting it will always a number one priority. Finally, I believe that having fun and enjoying what you do is extremely important for a successful career.
