Where are you from?

 I’m from Pinehurst, North Carolina.

What attracted you to the design profession? Did you have particular mentors or experiences that opened the door to the profession for you?

I’ve been interested in art ever since I was young. Whether if I was creating or studying it, I have always had a passion for how things look and how it made me and others feel. As I got older, I knew I wanted to pursue a career in some form of visual art. I chose Graphic Design because to me it is the ultimate way to visually express a concept, style, message or feeling

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I can draw inspiration from anything. Music, print or digital media, movies, games etc. It is one of the joys I have from being a creator. 

If there is karaoke at the next office party, what song will you be singing?

I ain’t no joke by Eric B. & Rakim

What is your favorite word?

Peace
