I took a graphics class as an elective, and I wound up loving the program. I looked into potential careers, got to know the software a little more and decided to switch into the field. I was originally an art major, so I have always been interested in art and design, but the graphics field offered more potential to grow as an artist and a person. I have heard great things about CB+D, and I wanted the opportunity to learn more about how the industry works in the real world. CB+D offers a great learning experience and it allows me to be extremely hands-on with every aspect of the process. It also allows me to work directly with clients. In my free time, I enjoy making art. I paint, draw, sculpt and make jewelry. I also enjoy reading, watching movies and playing sports.
