Hello, my name is Christopher Mackey, welcome to my website and online portfolio. A navigation bar on the left will guide you to the different sections of my site.

Please look around and e-mail me if you have any comments, questions or simply just want to say 'Hello': firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a creative professional most recently employed at the Mike Ferry Organization as the Creative Director of SELLING Magazine. My previous experience has been across several different types of industries such as magazines, a casino’s corporate graphic department, a print shop, a catalog, a newspaper and an apparel company. I am fluent on both Mac’s and PC’s and extremely well versed in many graphical programs, including the big three: Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
My passion for excellence sets me apart from the rest. I am always committed to producing the best results possible and am very highly organized and structured in my approach to any situation. I am a versatile, creative, hard working production/graphic expert with more than 15 years of professional experience in the computer graphics, advertising and print industries in addition to having high marks from previous employers. Combining that with a Bachelor's in Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design from San Diego State University, I have been able to excel in every role I have held. I am a very quick study and am always open to exploring new ways to accomplish something more efficiently and effectively.
