My interest in graphic design began unconventionally in an eighth grade science class, where I made illustrations for lab reports using AutoShapes. At the time, I felt like a pro, even though my work looked horrendous.
In high school, I learned how much I didn't know when I joined my school's journalism program, where I wrote feature articles and designed magazine pages. I continued working for the program after transferring to a charter high school, where I earned an Associate of Art upon graduating high school.
Going into my freshman year of college, I landed a job as a writer at my university's newspaper, and after a month, I became the Editor-in-Chief. In this position, I redesigned the newspaper and created the school's first-ever student-oriented magazine, which I designed in its entirety. After a year, I resigned from this position due to multiple attempts at censorship and created my own digital publication.
Currently, I'm a full-time student, and I work as a student graphic designer for Southern Utah University's Marketing Communication Office. My current freelance projects include:
