Description:I have 8 years of professional experience as a graphic and front-end web designer. My current role is Designer & Business Development Assistant for a technical and professional services firm that is steered toward government contracts (mostly energy, environment, and administrative management). This breaks down into a couple of jobs: 1. In-house Designer - I am the lead designer for an in-house design staff of 2. We build proposals for government contract which includes layouts, infographics, and various other design related materials. We also make all of the marketing materials for the company which include brochures, flyers, tradeshow banners, etc. 2. Business Development - I spend quite a bit of my time monitoring, finding and nourishing growth opportunities and helping position the company for future opportunities with other government agencies, teaming partners, and businesses. 3. Commercial Design and Business Developer - this is the most recent addition to my list of jobs. My assistant and I have been granted the opportunity to offer design and development services/expertise to our own clients under the company's name. I've lived in Colorado my whole life. I'm originally from Craig (Northwestern Colorado) and spent nearly every weekend of every winter, for as long as I can remember, skiing in Steamboat. I attempted school at CSU. Quickly, I could not get it up for my life long goal of becoming a mechanical engineer anymore and found "better" uses of my time. Then one morning I woke up, moved to Grand Junction, and that's where I stayed until I graduated in 2005. My wife and I have lived in Fort Collins and again in Grand Junction since then, following school and work around the state.
