I feel that I would be an asset to your company, due to my extensive knowledge in the Screen Printing industry as a whole. I have a driving passion that allows me to strive for nothing less then perfection. I have the willingness to work hard, and the capability to teach and share my knowledge with others. As well as learning new techniques as they are introduced into the industry standards guide for printing. I have strong leadership qualities and at the same time have the capabilities to maintain the ability to be instructed by my seniors.
