Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
Introduced to design by my friends in high school, made a hobby out of it.
Delved into typography, apparel design, and web using friends as clients.
Decided design wouldn't pay the bills, majored in Sociology at CSULB to study trends.
Realized I didn't want to sit in an office doing paperwork, switched major to Foundation Art.
Took all of my prerequisite art classes for the first time, including drawing and painting.
Became passionate about design, applied into the BFA Graphic Design Program at CSULB.
Admitted into the BFA program, spent two years working extensively in major design subjects.
Graduated. Confident. Driven. Applied at Column Five Media to design infographics.
