Like most Big Life Things, I am coming at my career sideways. My design experience is almost entirely recurring freelance work that I took on while a full-time student with a part-time job, or while working retail full-time. I want to continue to learn and overcome new challenges in every step of my career. I enjoy pushing myself through collaboration. Design is something that I will do regardless of where I am employed.
