My design experience starts in 2011 when I was in 11th grade at Leonardtown High School. I dual-enrolled at the James A Forrest Career and Technology Center, in which I was in the Graphic Communications program. During this program I gained basic experience in logo design, web design, and print design. I learned programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Corel Draw. I used equipment such as vinyl cutters, large-format printers, heat presses and DSLR Cameras.
December 2012: I won the Technology Handbook Cover Contest for 2013. This contest is open to both students and freelance designers. I received a 500$ cash prize, recognition, and the opportunity to have my design in every government and contractor building in the Southern Maryland Area.
March 2013: I had the honor of painting a large 10 x 15 foot undersea mural for the St.Marys Annual Hospital Gala. This gala is a large, formal charity banquet to raise money for the local hospital.
January 2013: I launched a marketing campaign for Cooley Construction. Cooley Construction is a locally owned construction company based in Southfield, MI. This campaign included creating a logo and unified brand through vinyl decorations for the work truck, business cards, flyers, bumper stickers and more.
March 2013: I created a logo for The Baldwin Center of Pontiac, MI. The Baldwin Center is a nonprofit whose mission is to ‘feed, clothe, educate and empower’ underprivileged people and kids. I designed a logo for their summer meals program, which provides lunches and snacks to kids through the summer. The kids who participate rely upon free or reduced lunches through the schools, and usually through the summer they go hungry.
September 2012: I began attending the College of Southern Maryland in general studies, while finishing my last year of high school. I also began working at the AMC St. Charles Movie Theater in Waldorf MD in August of 2012. I graduated High School and the Career Center in 2013, after which I began attending CSM full-time.
January 2014: I was promoted to Supervisor at AMC. Through this position I gained valuable experience in training new crew, hiring crew, inventory management, leading teams of up to 20 people, marketing, and providing excellent customer service. I left this position in August of 2014 due to relocation.
May 2017: Graduated Towson University with a Bachelors in Fine Arts and Design. I also started doing Screen printing at Graphix Haus in Baltimore, MD.
January 2018: Relocated to Richmond, VA and began my job at K2 Awards and Apparel as a Apparel Graphic Designer.
