After earning my undergraduate degree in Studio Art with concentrations in painting, printmaking and photography, I accepted a position as a Graphic Designer where I expanded my design skills over the next two years. I then relocated to Southern California in 2002 and shifted my professional career into the real estate industry.
About four years ago, I began studying Web Design and Web Development intent on transitioning back into the design field that I love. I enrolled in a Masters Degree program in Web Design at the Academy of Art University and, while I’ve learned a lot about Web Design standards, I realized that I also enjoy coding. So I decided to take a semester off from school and enroll in the Bloc Front-end Web Development program, which I completed in July, 2017. I have since returned to complete my Masters program.
I’ve also continued to pursue photography through freelance work and by contributing to several online stock photos sites including Surfline.com. Click on the links above to view my full resume and portfolio examples which further highlight my professional skills and personal attributes.
