Service Description

My graphic work is heavily influenced by my fine arts background. I use photography, free hand drawing and textile work in my graphic design projects. I am a methodical worker and a stickler about keeping timelines and deadlines. I work with Illustrator, Photoshop, Premier, InDesign, Dreamweaver and other open source programs such as Gimp, Virtual Dub and Audacity.

I have also been working as a language instructor. I teach Spanish and English to adults and children. Students come from different cultures and I have been able to adapt my teaching style for their individual needs. Because of this I am very efficient at translating English to Spanish and vice versa. I use boh languages on an every day basis.
