My years of working as a freelance graphic designer and a retail sales person has given me much experience in working in a fast paced environment. I have learned to remain friendly and positive even as situations become overwhelming and potentially stressful. I am obsessively punctual and always arrive to work clean, on time, and with a smile on my face. I am also in love with good coffee (and any delicious brewed beverage for that matter; coffee, tea, beer, I couldgo on).

Retail sales associate in charge of sales, customer service, opening and closing the department, and leading training classes on DSLR cameras. The environment is fast paced and, at points, high pressure but I think I have benefited from my time here.
