Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $25

This broad perspective is, for sure, one of the reasons I have clients that I have been serving for over a decade.

Relying on 15+ years of experience in the editorial, publishing and printing industry (plus the knowledge from a few academic degrees), I aspire to associate myself and work with the best, and always welcome new...

Service Description

I have an academic degree in Advertising and Marketing and almost two decades of practice in different sides of the industry.

All that experience taught me that, instead of imposing my own fees, it is best to work side by side with my clients and their budgets. My goal is to optimize the resources with creativity and "outside-the-box" thinking in order to achieve their objectives.

My know-how is not limited to the creative side of things - I have worked in production as well, and acquired valuable understanding of several techniques (of printing, imaging, recording, producing, promoting, purchasing) that allows me to accomplish the highest return of investment.

With customer service orientation, more than just win individual assignments, I hope to build long term professional relationships with my clients and fulfill their current and future needs.
