Growing up a skateboarder I was always fascinated by the bold and colorful graphics on skateboards. Some of my earliest memories are of going into the local skate shop and being blown away by all the different art styles. Now although I didn't realize it at the time, this would be the start to a lifelong obsession with art and design. I would draw on my shoes, my homework, napkins at restaurants, anything I could really. But it wasn't until High School that I realized this could turn into a career. I took one computer art and design class and the minute I was introduced to the adobe programs, I knew this was the right path for me. My creative world went from mainly just drawing to being able to carry out any idea I had in my mind. From that point on my artistic style just kept evolving. Now, just recently graduating from Madison Area Technical College with my associates degree in Graphic Design I feel like I'm really hitting my stride. I'm excited to keep evolving as a designer/ human being and to leave my mark on the design world!
