From a very young age, I have been fascinated with coloring and drawing. I realized that by expressing things on paper, it allowed me to draw things as I imagined them, not just as they seemed, this is where I first started expressing my creativity. Later, as I got older, my family bought their first computer. I was intrigued with the idea of drawing and painting on the computer, allowing me to further extend my creative abilities. Then while a sophmore in High School, I decided to take a course in desktop publishing, this made me realize that my creativity could be channeled into designing effective advertising not just art. Meet Photoshop 2.0 on the Mac, my new obsession, I spent hours learning every facet of it. Adding to the list of graphic software was Adobe Illustrator and Aldus Pagemaker. I recieved many awards in class for my designs, in fact by my Senior year I was offered a teachers assistant position where I was able to share my knowledge with other students. Since then I have made a successful career out of my talents, working for various advertising agencies along with owning 2 of my own.
