As you will see by
my resumé, I have been working in the Graphic Arts field for
the majority of the last ten years. While my specialty has been illustration,
I have also sought out instruction in typesetting, desktop publishing,
and the full printing process, from stripping through bindery. I have
also learned advertising and page layout. I have used these skills in
my personal life as well as my professional life as editor and publisher
of "the MacLeod and Clear," a newsletter for the Historical
Friends of Clan MacLeod, a Renaissance re-enactment group of which I
am a member and officer.
This is not the limits of my abilities. Before my Graphics experience,
while I attended college, I had jobs in offices, acting as a billing
clerk, a receptionist, a telemarketer, as well as managing a one-man
office. Thus I have had experience dealing with the public, both listening
and responding to orders and requests. Many English and Public Speaking
classes add to my ability to communicate effectively.
Finally, I have a number of natural abilities. I am organized, detail
conscious, adaptable, creative, and an excellent problem solver. I also
have an excellent memory.
My work has always been exemplary. If upon review of my qualifications,
you find that you need someone like myself, don't hesitate to contact
me at the address or phone number above.
Thank you for your time.
