Skills

I am highly trained in the use of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator specifically in the area of photo editing, restoration, and manipulation as well as logo design, typography, and video editing. I also have a high level of proficiency with the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite, including Bridge, Dreamweaver, Flash and InDesign, as well as with the Microsoft Office Suite. I am also very experienced with both Windows and OS X operating systems and possess a high degree of proficiency in social media (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, BlogSpot, Instagram). I’m very personable, driven, well-organized and customer service-oriented with management experience.
