a passion for design

Ever since I was young, I was interested in pleasing others with great design. I was originally interested in video & then I moved on to gain an interest in Adobe Photoshop as well. I spent many hours experimenting with video & photo editing until by the time that I went to college, I had decided to pursue an education in design. I grew a love for great design during my education & eventually branched off to learn how to code for the web as well so that I could bring my designs online.
