In the 6th grade, I asked for a Wacom Tablet for Christmas, and have been design sketching ever since. My free time was spent learning Photoshop and different drawing techniques, I also volunteered for a non profit adoption agency designing some promotional material. My family moved to Arizona mid way through my freshman year in high school. In my junior year, I began attending Glendale Community College (GCC) for dual credits. The year following my graduation from high school I received my Associates in Arts degree from GCC.
I applied to ASU's Industrial Design program while finishing my AA Degree at GCC and was accepted. The following year I was one of 35 students invited to continue on in the program. I am currently in my third year at The Herberger Institute/ASU and love the design program and the things I have learned!
