My road in life took a while to figure out.

I was raised in an old-fashioned way—my parents didn’t put a lot of pressure on me to figure out what I was going to do for a career because it was assumed I would just get married and have kids.

After graduating from high school, I didn’t have any guidance on what to do next, so I took a gap year to figure it out.

Attended community college at Cabrillo College in Santa Cruz, California—I was originally a nutrition major, but in my second year I changed my major to fine arts.

I was introduced to graphic design after taking a design and composition class and I realized that was the subject that I was truly interested in.

Transferred to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where I earned my bachelor’s degree in graphic design and computer graphics.

After graduating from UCLA, I decided to take a web design course at the ArtCenter College of Design and get involved in the technological side of design.

I worked as a web designer for various companies before getting the opportunity to become a co-founder and art director for a fashion apparel company.

I now run my own brand design and marketing company, in addition to being the creative arts director for the Museum of Tolerance at the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

I loved this assignment. Once I started looking through career choices I felt more motivated then ever to stay focused on School and Art.
