EXPERIENCE

Da Ré INSPIRED
Freelance Graphic Design - March 2008 to present

Having obtained a business license, I set out to found a freelance design and photography firm. This endeavor has proved successful; I have designed a variety of identity systems, websites, and hand-bound memory books for individuals, companies, and government entities, including the city of Winters. Running this firm has proved invaluable, as I have gained graphic design and client relation experience, as well as having learned how much hard work is needed to make a small business succeed.

GRUBB & ELLIS
Graphics Specialist - November 2010 to December 2011

I was recruited by my previous employers at Colliers to join their new team at Grubb & Ellis to provide graphics and marketing for the Walnut Creek and Oakland offices. Here I worked with over 30 brokers to build and maintain their websites and marketing collateral, including large presentations and proposals. I also taught monthly classes to the office admin to familiarize them in the adobe creative suite programs to help our office run as smoothly as possible.

NOBLE IMAGE
Graphic Design - November 2009 to November 2010

As a graphic designer at a small web design firm, I work daily with HTML, CSS, and Flash and have developed a working knowledge of the integration of PHP and jQuery allowing for quick and dynamic maintenance. I am also well versed in WordPress for blogs and as a content management system for clients who wish to manage their own websites. While managing 17 to 20 clients at a time, I’ve maintained healthy client relationships through communication, organization, and the ability to troubleshoot and foresee potential issues, all while adhering to a strict timeline and a high level of quality in both design and web standards.

COLLIERS INTERNATIONAL
Graphic Design, Marketing - October 2007 to November 2009

After being hired as an intern to revamp marketing flyers, I was put in charge of all marketing-related projects for a group of commercial office brokers. Since that time, I have built websites for 15 properties, allowing web users to access floor plans and take virtual tours of office spaces on the market.

PERDEPERA
"Animatrice"/Promoter - Summer 2005

I worked at the Italian resort, Perdepera, organizing activities and events during which I interacted with guests and accommodated their needs, while learning the language and cultural nuances in order to better serve the company and its patrons.
