Multimedia Specialist
As the Multimedia Specialist for L-3 Linkabit I am required to have a high level of understanding and creativity in various aspects of design and am responsible for implementing web, print and video needs across multiple platforms. I support and create numerous elements that are incorporated into the many trade shows that L-3 attends, while working with other divisions to make sure that all creative is on brand, cohesive and displays the necessary information and material to entice current and future customers. I also work in-house on supporting facility graphics, vehicle wraps, trade show giveaways, data sheets, product booklets, updating Linkabit’s website and creating eye catching presentations all while meeting deadlines and exceeding expectations.

Graphic Designer
As the designer for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers I work closely with internal and external clients, including partners and sponsors, to produce hundreds of pieces of on-brand collateral which cover the gammut of print, web, video and email. I developed strong assets that were used during Training Camp, Night Practice and regular season gamedays including stadium signage, billboards, vehicle wraps, fan giveaways, front end web design and upkeep, ticketing experieces and jumbotron graphics while continuously working on in house materials and communications that targeted our current fan base, members and future fans. I play a vital roll in making sure that all messaging is correct and easy for members and fans to understand while assuring that all deadlines are met and the creative is interesting and powerful. While at the Bucs, my strong work ethic and leadership abilities helped my team through times where we were understaffed and against tight turnarounds and deadlines. The range of projects and collateral that I have created has helped me grow as a designer and understand what it takes to work and be successful in the entertainment industry.
