My name is actually Cheryl K. Young and I would call myself a creative, analytical, detail oriented, planning type and an artist. Define Artist : a person who practises

My favourite things include; that feeling when you first wake and realize you don't have to get up yet (literally awesome), singing in the car (I see few fellow driver's enjoying their travel as much as I do), comedic and pointed metaphors, completeing "To Do" lists, and seeing projects come to fruition!

Nothing brings more joy then seeing a project complete and delivering to a client.

I have an Advanced Diploma in New Media Animation & Digital Production. I spent my 3rd year focus on turning my existing design skill into interactive web layouts and giving me marketable skills. My schooling covered much of the Adobe Master Suite: 'Macromedia' Adobe Director, Flash, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, and After Effects. I completed credits in 3D animation in XSI Softimage, Web Developement, Art Direction, Design, DVD Authoring, Interactive Design, Video Editing and Compositing among others.

I put myself through school working a summer job at an eBay store responsible for product research, copy writing, photography, photo editing, defining search terms & meta data categories, posting items & shipping; and also 3 years at a local Staples Copy & Print Centre resposible for Print/copy production , order taking, file acceptance, pre-flighting pdf files, finishing services, upselling, scheduling/delivery projects, training associates, inventory/supply, some design work and my favourite part: educating people about services (an excellent opportunity to use metaphors!). I freelanced different branding-design-layout projects, web developement jobs and teaching the use of online CMS & general tech privately.

Since, I have taken a fast paced and diverse position working for a group of companies doing - almost everything I went to school for. If it needs to be done and it's in my sphere; the project is mine to work through, learn at and deliver.
