My father has always been very computer-literate, from owning his own computer parts store as a young man, to software programming for a local university, and even playing video games in his spare time. Whenever I picture my dad, he's at his computer. I have adored and idolized this man my entire life, so I've known from a young age that I wanted a career in computers. Other interests like photography and scrapbooking, combined with my fascination with computers, led me to digital media and graphic design.

My career path started in high school when I joined the Yearbook staff, three years in a row. I even attended summer yearbook camps to improve my skills. Nerdy, I know. After high school, I started taking classes at Utah Valley University, learning the basics of HTML, CSS and graphic design.

I also got my first job as a designer at a graphic design firm in Provo, UT. After only a year in this position, I realized my time in the field had taught me more than the instructors at school ever could. There was nothing they could teach me that I hadn't already experienced firsthand. So I switched my major to English, but continued working in the field of graphic design.

I worked at a few different design firms over the next 5 years, learning more and gaining more valuable experience. Then in 2011 I went rogue, working on various projects as a freelance graphic designer and writer.

I'm currently self-employed, offering services like web and print design, branding, social networking, SEO, web writing, ghost blogging, consulting and digital marketing. Read Less
