My grandmother once told me, "Stay interested because my friends who don't, don't last long." When I became interested in learning graphic design, I started with weekend college courses. After, I taught myself Front End Development. I designed and produced websites for companies in both the USA and Canada. I worked with an amazing team on the educational mobile game "Agents of Discovery." Along the way, I was the cinematographer for an independent short film, "Golden," which won the Best Minnesota Made Film award in the 2013 Minneapolis International Film Festival. As Art Director at Total Expert, one of the fastest growing SaaS companies in Minnesota, I led designers and collaborated with teams across departments. All of this before deciding to enroll at Prime Digital Academy to study UX Design. I will always be interested.
