Where do you find inspiration?
“My inspiration comes from a number of different places. First, from other designers in the industry that I have come across and/or admire. If they have a certain skill set or piece of work that I love, I try and figure out how/why they did something and then apply it to my life and my work. My inspiration also comes from the environment. I am fascinated by nature and try to bring its textures, colors, and lighting into my work as well.”

How has your success in the professional world been affected by your experience at FIDM?
“My success has tremendously been affected by my experience at FIDM. Not a day goes by that I don't use the skills I acquired through my education at FIDM. The instructors, small class sizes, and the great internship experience prepared me for the ‘real world’ that is graphic design and advertising. I know, for a fact, that I wouldn't be where I am today without the education and experiences I obtained while at FIDM.”
