Salt Lake City Weekly:
Assistant Production Manager, 2006-present
At City Weekly, I work as part of a Production team in a very fast-paced environment with daily and weekly deadlines. Tasks included a vast array of print media including banners, advertisements, stickers & apparel created using the Adobe Creative Suite.
Web tasks included uploading each week’s editorial content to CityWeekly.net via an in-house content management system, online advertisements and various website maintenance. I was also the lead designer working with a third-party CMS to develop the new CityWeekly.net.
As Assistant Production Manager, I act as the liason between the Production & Sales departments. I also function as the “Help Desk” for all things related to the website–both on the front and back ends.
Various Freelance & Consulting Work:
I have worked with a wide range of clients to provide them with website design & maintenance, branding, print media & packaging. I have also given workshops on how to improve website performance and search engine optimization (SEO). I have also provided private Dreamweaver training to teach users the basics to update their own websites.
