I started my creative journey wanting to go to college to become an art teacher. My senior year of high school, I took a computer graphics class and designed my high school graduation program cover. I was hooked.
I attended Monroe Community College and received an associate degree in Visual Arts: Graphic Design and Printing Technology. It was at MCC where I refined my foundation skills but really where my love of typography, color and layout started to grow.
After graduating from MCC, I transferred to the Rochester Institute of Technology and graduated in 2008 with a BFA in Graphic Design. While attending RIT I discovered that I am not only passionate about design, I am thoroughly interested in what leads up to beautiful design solutions. Learning about something new and different to inform an end result is one of the things I love most about what I do.
Working mainly as a print designer over the last nine years, I have developed a passion for creating artifacts. I am intrigued by the experience that someone can have with a physical object. It is difficult to break away from the tangible world of print design but I am starting to get my feet wet when it comes to web design.
