When I was 9-years-old I taught myself how to use Adobe Photoshop 5.0 & how to code websites using HTML/CSS. It wasn't until taking a Regional Occupational Program course in high school for graphic design did I learn that my passion could become my career. I currently have my B.F.A. in Graphic Design from University of the Pacific. I have interned for two non-profit organizations, worked as a designer and animator at University of the Pacific, a graphic designer for a public relations company, and freelanced for businesses. In the future I plan on pursuing projects that promote humanitarian work while integrating interactive media into each design.
