28, 1977 in Juneau, Alaska
lives in Cornelius, OR
didn't originally plan on becoming a graphic designer. As a child
I often dreamt of being a teacher or a children's book illustrator.
In fact, it wasn't until I became unhappy with my computer science
major during my sophmore year at Oregon State University that
I decided I needed a change. My first idea was to go into movie
special effects, but at the time funding for that type of education
was unrealistic. Despite this obstacle I still wanted to persue
an art degree. After visiting the Portland State website I became
very interested in the graphic design program. The idea of creating
interesting layouts and images for print and the web, sounded
challenging and more importantly fun!
am almost finished with my third year of a bachelor degree in
graphic design and do not regret my decision. I find the graphic
design profession to be the most rewarding field out there. There
is nothing quite like the satisfaction of seeing an early concept
transform into a final product.
