I am currently a graphic arts student at Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland, Ohio and a resident of Lakewood, Ohio. Photography and visual art have always been a passion for me. I love to create unique and eye-catching pieces using different lighting and photo editing processes. My biggest inspiration is usually the environment around me. I have been all over the country; and I have been in Cleveland for 3 years now. I lived between Brownsville and Houston Tx. for my early childhood and teen years. I also lived out in Los Angeles, CA for 4 years, where I worked in the field of market research. By moving around so much, I have become attracted to major metropolitan areas and the liveliness surrounding them. I obtained my GED at the age of 28, and decided to pursue a career in Graphic Design. Since starting Tri-C's graphic design program, I have been able to get an internship with an upstart for young professionals called Launch House, and I have also been able to get an early start to my freelance career. I hope to motivate anyone who thinks its too late to go back to school to think twice. It's never too late to make a career out of what you love to do.
