BACKGROUND & EXPERIENCE

I was born and raised in Miami, FL, and presently live now in Fort Lauderdale. Since I was 4 years old, I always had love and motivation for art, from drawing to painting. When I got into high school, I was introduced to an urban art form, also known as graffiti. Graffiti really motivated me to pursue art even more and it led me to use Adobe Photoshop to make my artwork digital. Using Photoshop inspired me to pursue a graphic design career.

After I graduated high school in 2004, I linked up with a small design company owned by a friend to do freelance work. I gained a little more experience doing ads and illustrations. In 2007 a company called Image Graphics 2000 hired me as a lead graphic designer. I gained a great amount of knowledge about large format printing. I learned how to design vehicle wraps, boat wraps and all kinds of large-scale advertising and signage. In 2009 I took on a greater job opportunity as a creative director and graphic designer with a small advertising firm called Contour Graphics. I learned all about print and web design, and worked with a creative team to execute projects. These two industry jobs allowed me to gain professional experience, and greater understanding about the industry.
