I am a graduate of Chico State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Art Studio. I successfully completed three years of study as a Communications Major with an emphasis in Graphic Design, was a 4-time Honor Roll Student, and tutored two semesters for the Business Department. Upon graduation, I was hired as a drug center clerk for Raley's Family of Fine Stores and later promoted to the main office as a graphic production artist/designer. I left Raley's to work for The Sacramento Bee as a graphic designer. It was around this time that I began studies in Web Design, Web Programming and Flash Animation. I returned to Raley's as a freelance designer and was re-hired as a full-time employee splitting my duties as a designer working in both print and web. I now work exclusively on our three websites: raleys.com, nobhill.com and foodsource.net. I continue learning in an effort to keep up with the ever-changing trends in web programming and design.
