DECO: What is a typical workday like for you?
Rudy: I approach my work with initiative, meaning I do not wait for direction; I try to deliver finished products that surpass the expectations of the client/employer. First thing I do is review any pending items to track their progress or follow up needed then look over new requests and prioritize them so I can keep the work flow organized.
DECO: What’s it like to be a part of the Marketing team?
Rudy: It’s very fun learning each other’s work ethic and personality, as well as further developing great communication skills and background knowledge in the lighting industry.
DECO: How has your career evolved at Deco Lighting?
Rudy: More assignments have been bestowed upon me as the time has passed. I love being able to help my bosses and colleagues out at Deco. Every project they give me makes me learn new things and ultimately makes me a stronger designer and professional.
