I have a nearly lifelong education in creating. Originally it was more the fine arts (ceramics, watercolor, screenprinting, illustrations etc.), however once exposed to graphic and web design in High School, I was hooked. From there I pursued design through to my Associates of Arts degree.
It was at this point I did something a bit untraditional and decided to explore an education into another passion of mine, the environment. After receiving my BS, I decided that while I would love to pursue a career in the environmental field, my true passion was in being creative. It was near this time that I made the leap from a part time designer and photographer, to a full time Designer with Fred Meyer.
