At the age of 16 I jumped head first into the graphic design industry.
For several years I successfully worked as a freelance graphic designer, working on everything from logo designs and advertising banners, to website concepts and application icons. My talents were completely self‒taught and while I worked as a designer I received multiple awards on top of having my designs published in several logo design and web inspiration publications.
Eventually my interest in graphic design was overshadowed by my pure love for creativity, the internet, and online projects.
Today I am still actively involved in the design community and occasionally take on design projects, but I do not consider myself to be a professional designer any longer.
