Academic interests



Since i was a kid, I always wanted to make things: props for my G.I. joes, weird things to eat that looked like statues, skelly tops with my initials in them, etc. Despite the urge to create, I still wouldn’t have ever thought of myself as “creative” if it wasn’t for my family moving to Pennsylvania, Living in a town with nothing to do and being banned from the internet because I ran up the phone bill, I started passing the time with Adobe Photoshop Business Edition v1.0.

At first, I used Photoshop for removing pimples in friends pictures, so they could post them on Then the MySpace craze hit, and I started reading other people’s HTML codes in order to create my own custom banners and backgrounds. It wasn’t until a girl in a bar told me that I should pursue my passion that I visited City Tech and saw they had a man named Jacob Cass as a speaker. After researching his branding style, I immediately enrolled as a par-time student of the Arts and Advertising design program.

I am currently two classes away from my Associates Degree and have decided that Photography is the art I want to pursue. Though there is no Photography program at City Tech, I can honestly say that I look at everything around me in a completely different way and I would had never appreciated art and design without the classes and professors at City Tech.
