I have 30 years of experience as a production manager in the Chicago area. I currently manage the pre-press department for a suburban printer, which involves digital composition, proofing, color-correction, and final separations and plating. I am highly skilled with Adobe Creative Suite, using InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator in my daily work.

My job involves creating and composing ads, catalogs, booklets, labels, and logos. I manage the prepress department of a suburban print shop.
