I am currently seeking employment in the graphics/multimedia field.  I will consider contract or telecommuter work although I am mobile.  Please mail me if you have any questions.

I have been fortunate to utilize the computer as a tool in graphic design and multimedia work; e.g., sandblasting, glass artwork, digital and print imagery. I wish to continue to expand my knowledge in the seamless melding of audio, video, text, design, and animation described in the world of multimedia. I'm  looking for web systems integration company, offering leading edge Internet and Multimedia technology specializing in electronic commerce, web-based learning, entertainment and custom web solutions. I have a keen interest in continuing growth through exposure to a variety of technologies. I will utilize these dynamic innovative tools in a business environment; specifically, to find meaningful work as a multimedia developer with an organization that is creative and innovative.

I am currently learning several software packages used in the pre-press/graphics industry as well as looking into the possibility of getting my NetGuru Internet Webmaster Designer or Administrator Certification. I remain committed to life long learning. On the personal side would be to make a small difference in this world ...
