I’m a visual artist seeking to make the change in my professional career from working in technical support in the telecommunications industry for 17 years to working in the arts.
I’d like to bring my high level of customer support, experience working with video, telephone and internet technologies, multitasking, researching and communication with multiple departments to working with other creative individuals.
I attended San Diego State University working towards my BA in Art and while there I enjoyed working in the Department of the Art Director as a an office assistant where I learned that working in the arts is an extremely exciting and rewarding endeavor.
