Bio

Welcome to my page!

I am a senior student studying communication design in New York City. Growing up I have always loved being creative and always found myself favoring art classes throughout my education. In high school, I had courses where I learned different digital software programs like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. It sparked my interest, but at that moment I had no idea a career path in graphic design existed or that it was in my future.

Feeling quite lost and unaware that graphic design was such a thing to study for, I decided to continue my education in a community college to set an example for the younger members of my family. In the Spring of 2014, I graduated with a Liberal Arts Degree, and soon after I started working as an administrative coordinator at The West Side Tennis Club. I had the responsibility of designing event flyers, restaurant menus, table tents, and more. My moment of realization came when the club members acknowledged my talent and encouraged me to pursue a career in communication design.
