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 design class and the minute I was introduced to the adobe programs, I knew this was the right path for me. My design world went from mainly just drawing to being able to carry out any idea I had in my mind. From that point on my design style just kept evolving. Now in my final semester of the Graphic Design program I feel like I’m really coming into my style and I’m excited to see where it takes me.
