As long as I can remember, I always had a pencil or pen in hand. All of my notebooks from school were littered with doodles in the margins of my notes. Throughout high school and college, I continuously took art classes with drawing as my primary focus. At Florida International, I double majored in psychology and sociology, and pursued various career paths in science and education until I became determined to follow my dream of having a career in art. That brought me to Boston University's Center for Digital Imaging Arts, where I transformed my passion into graphic and web design.
Graphic design has been part of my life since 2005, when I started using Photoshop as a means of isolating visual stimuli for fMRI experiments. It really opened my eyes to the possibility of a career in the field. I knew right then, that I was done with science.
Web design was a natural progression for my interests, and I quickly came to view it like I was solving a puzzle. It appealed to my logical side, as well as my artistic side. The process of creating something out of nothing is so gratifying, that I never see it as work. It's a passion for me.
