Resume and Website Overhaul

First things first, I've hated my resume for a long time now.

There will be 2 versions, first up is the new copy for the Graphic design one NOT the game version


Suggestions are very welcome


Overview
The smart artist is the one who will adapt and excel in many creative roles. Over the years, I’ve worked in graphic design, the game industry, motion graphics, animation, and studio management. I’ve been on teams that were all male, except me, teams that were all female, and teams that have been a mixed group. I’m the artist who is a jack of all trades, the person people go to in order to solve a problem or get them out of the tight spot, and I’ll keep doing that for any team. As always, I’m hoping to further my creative knowledge with a new opportunity.
