HAILED FROM PITTSBURGH...
It's so awkward to write about yourself as a designer...like, "Hey. I'm like creative and stuff." The skinny of who I am as a creative individual is simple.
I grew up in Southern Ohio and moved to Pittsburgh, PA, for college. I attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for Graphic Design and eventually fell in love with the city. A few years later, I moved to Los Angeles and pursued a dream of diversifying myself as a human and as a designer.
I can't speak highly enough of the people I have met since moving here, though the loud, sarcastic Easterner in me deeply misses Pittsburgh. The knowledge I gained under the creative direction of one of the most perfect humans I've ever met has been priceless, and the amount of growth I've accomplished in the past 3 years is unmeasurable. I owe a great deal of myself to the influencers in my life, and I am so very thankful for the knowledge California has bestowed on me.
The bottom line of myself - the real reason for my success is passion. I have a passion for art and all of its facets. I have an unquenchable thirst to become better, only from working with those who are better than myself. I love my team; I see them as family, and in doing so, I share my successes and failures with them. I don't believe in ownership, I believe in the relationships we build with others. The world needs beauty in it, and that is the talent and gift I was given. Always create. Never stop.
