My resume can tell you all about my work experience, education and skill set, but here’s a bit about me that it won't tell you...
I’m a self-taught designer.
In elementary school I thought it was fun to mess around in Adobe Elements for hours at a time. When I turned sixteen, instead of asking for a new car or other typical teenage gift, I begged my parents for the Adobe Creative Suite. So long career in equine science; hello pixel pushing!
I originally went to school for interior design.
Although I absolutely loved the design process: the idea generation, the concepting, the research, the collaboration and the presentation of a final design, I was more interested in the graphics side of it all.
I’m a Chicago transplant… from Jersey.
No, I don’t know any of the folks from the Jersey Shore but I will do my best to show you how to properly fist-pump. I grew up on a small horse farm in rural North Jersey, so I'm more of a country-girl than a GTL-girl.
