When asked as a kid what I wanted to be when I grew up I always answered, "I want to be an astronaut or an artist." As I got older I realized one was more likely than the other and pursued my dreams as a graphic designer. Choosing to be a designer was the smartest way to integrate my passion for art and my need to keep things organized. In my career I have designed many projects from license plates and billboards to wine glasses and brochures. I enjoy the excitement of a deadline and the watching the success of a marketing campaign grow.
