Recently moved to the Palm Springs area, I am pursuing local graphic design and home maintenance work. It is more rewarding to help people get things done on a personal level.
Graphic Design - For many years I managed corporate in-house graphics and publications at Rane Corporation, a professional audio equipment manufacturer. I produced all the data sheets, manuals, technical papers, logos, websites, product photos, product drawings, product silkscreens, labels, brochures, catalogs, books, advertising, videos, trade show graphics and promotional items. I use Adobe CC applications with superior skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Acrobat, and Powerpoint. I am accepting freelance and contract design work in southern California. I create the best work when I am able to meet you in your environment, to best reflect the right image to your customers. I will work on-site at your office, or remotely with an occasional meeting. I work equally well in Mac or Windows.
Property Maintenance - I do occasional property management and handyman services for homes in the Palm Springs area. I can handle minor maintenance jobs myself, or will help you find a local contractor. I have owned several homes and helped friends with their projects, so I know my tools. I will let you know if I am not experienced and confident of any project. I follow building code, I will not work on a project more than $500, or that require a licensed contractor or permits, as I am not state licensed at this time. I am trustworthy to take care of vacation rental homes between guests when the owner can't be present, and can maintain your second residence during the summer months. I'm welcoming, friendly and professional when meeting renters or contractors.
