resume

{objective}

i am a freelance “crafter” interested in pursuing design work with manufacturers and publishers.
for the past 10 years or so my published works have consisted mainly of projects done for magazine advertisements, catalogs or other promotional material for Clearsnap, Grafix and several other manufacturers. i have focused on freelance design work as well as teaching locally. i have not pursued publication in magazines during this period.
