About me

I am a Graphic and Web Designer living in the NY/NJ area. I have received a total of eight consecutive years of education on graphic design with nearly six years of working as both a freelance designer and an in-house designer.

I started my journey to design at the rigorous Bergen Technical Institute, a high school which focused on strong technical skills. I was pushed in this direction after being fascinated by web typography, experimenting with HTML and CSS at the age of eight. I built this responsive portfolio site using my skills in HTML, CSS, and Javascript.
