About Me

An inquisite mind with a passion for the creative arts.
Advocate of Lifelong Learning

In my work and in my personal life, learning plays an important role. It's not a single destination for me, but a lifelong journey. In college, I wanted to be an illustrator and was especially fascinated with “imaginative realism” as depicted in the work of such illustrators as Graeme Base and Kinuko Craft. I aspired to be a children’s book illustrator. Then I discovered the world of typography. Storytelling paired with letter shapes and images to communicate and evoke emotions. My focus shifted to becoming a graphic designer. The concept of pairing content and images with interactivity led me to an interest, and later a passion, for Web design. And so the journey continues.
