Love Once I started creating, I couldn’t stop. I began drawing the first moment I gripped a pencil, using a mouse with as much dexterity as a toddler could. As a kid, I taught myself HTML from books at the library and saved up my allowance for some graphics software. As a teenager, I helped my friends’ punk bands with flyers, websites, and t-shirts. After school and after my 9 to 5s, I’d fire up my home computer to scratch the creative itches class and work couldn’t satisfy.
Money I became an independent design consultant when I helped my uncle
choose fonts create a typography system for his municipal judicial campaign and made $20 a pop designing MySpace layouts… in middle school. After obtaining a Graphic Design degree, I cut my teeth in full-service advertising agencies specializing in digital marketing, providing a well-rounded view of how design impacts the bottom line for major corporations and mom-&-pops alike.
