Designer/ and maker of stuff


Resume

Designer, Artist, Developer are all ways to describe me. I am a curious individual and have an interest in pushing boundaries and mediums. 

My interests are to work in visual mediums as well as explore further in both UX and user interaction in my mediums. I have a background in design, printing and various aspects of software development. 

I am always expanding my understanding in my fields so keep checking back to see what new projects I have taken on. 

I was originally a self-taught individual but I wanted to learn more outside of my own perspective. I went back to school after having already been a publication designer and having worked in IOS development so that I could be better-rounded and go further with what I wanted to create. I started school at Pellissippi state and continued onto the University of Tennessee. I later moved to the St Louis area and completed my BFA at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. I also minored in computer science. I still continue to learn on my own and have a better foundation from university to find the answers I seek.
