age 15 I got my first job. Some would have called it child labour, but I called it the best experience of my life. It was a job at a local newspaper, creating ads like “Sale! $9.99 shoes at the Shoe Depot! [star burst] ”
All I could think was- I can make money doing THIS! From that moment on, my love for design grew, even before I knew what graphic design was.
Fast forward to 2011 after graduating from the Savannah College of Art and Design, with a Bachelors in Fine Arts: I found myself working at an ad agency, where I was responsible for art directing and producing nationwide campaigns for clients like Baileys, Captain Morgan, Camel, and Coca-Cola just to name a few, but it never felt like work a day in my life.

In addition to my proficient design and web skills, I also bring my well rounded experience, a determination to surpass expectations and the ability to truly love what I do. I think these qualities are truly the driving force that turn a job into a career and a career into a lifelong commitment.
