About Me

how my story began...

I was raised with science fiction movies, books, and video games. So, it wasn’t a surprise to my parents when after getting my first computer when I was 5 – a Commodore 64 – I exclaimed that I was going to be a graphic designer when I grew up. I really liked Print Shop and Color Me. After drawing my way through high school, I went on to college to earn my degree in Graphic Design.

After college, I started my career as a graphic designer by designing stationery for major retail outlets, and print materials for the corporate world, and then I became fascinated by web design and development. I fired up my left brain and taught myself a little bit of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
