I am young aspiring graphic designer from the moderately little city of Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
Growing up I would doodle on my sketchbooks, tests, quizzes, shoes, pants, and pretty much everything around me. This eventually led me into the field, as I followed my passions.

History:

In 2009 - I started a clothing company called 'LEAD Difference'. I sold mainly t-shirts, along with other custom clothing products. I used the program Inkscsape (the best free thing at the time) to create all of my designs. 'LEAD Difference' gave 25% of all profits to feeding orphans in Rwanda, Africa. It was very rewarding for me, my customers, and those cute children in Africa.

In 2010 - One of my best friends, Matthew Whetham, approached me with an offer. He saw how I quickly learned digital design software, and how I had an aptitude for design, and so he offered me a job with his company. I worked for 7-12 months as a junior web designer at Whetham Solutions. I taught myself how to code using HTML and CSS, how to use Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Dreamweaver, and how to, essentially, be a web/graphic designer. Matthew and his wife inspired me a lot, and I appreciate all of their support.

In 2011 - I ventured out on my own doing freelance work as a web designer and graphic designer. I was enrolled in the YMCA's Young Entrepreneurship program. They helped me start my own business successfully, and I created a living for myself.
I enjoyed this thoroughly but wasn't satisfied, sooooo.....

In 2012 - I enrolled in Barrie's Georgian College for the Graphic Design program. I do not regret my decision in the slightest! The teachers are amazing and I have gained so many valuable friends and colleagues. My design, business knowledge, and overall skills, have improved vastly throughout college.

Currently - I am in college until the summer of 2015.

I have become very efficient in digital software such as, Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and QuarkXpress. Read Less
