About

A brief history of me, we can discuss it further when we meet

  • 2003

    Creative College

    Enrolled at the MN School of Business to pursue a degree in Graphic Design. This was also the first Mac I owned, the Power Mac G4!

  • 2006

    Graduation

    I earned an Associate of Applied Science degree in Advertising Design. I left school with knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, Dreamweaver and Flash. I was eager to get my first job as a professional Graphic Designer.

  • 2010

    Started Working on Websites

    I had always been interested in websites but this was the year that my interest peaked. I started to learn HTML. Take it from me, some of the first sites I designed were HORRIBLE, I've come a long way!

  • 2013-2016

    College Student, Again!

    In fall of 2013 I enrolled in the Web Design & Interactive Media program at The Art Institutes International Minnesota. I am about 75% done with school and will graduate with my Bachelor's degree. I am fascinated by what I am learning and I am ready to put it to use. If you need to get ahold of me, just look for my computer and I'll be there.

  • June 2016

    College Graduate

    In June 2016 I graduate from The Art Institutes International MN with a Bachelor of Science degree in Web Design & Interactive Media. I was also selected to be the student speaker during the graduation ceremony.
