I was born and raised in New York City, until I decided to go up to the winter wonderland that is known as Rochester. I'm a senior at RIT and I will be graduating in May 2018. I have a passion for creating beautiful interfaces and engaging experiences. You can probably find me perfecting the shade of a background or brainstorming a solution to a problem with an app I use. When I'm not doing that, I'm practicing hand lettering or sipping on a matcha latte 🙂
I got my first computer when I was 10 years old. That's when I discovered a virtual pet site called Neopets and immediately fell in love. I was a curious little kid so I decided to play around with creating graphics from images I found on the site. That became a full on hobby. I played with different image editing softwares and learned how to code (yes, I used iFrames). I was fascinated with gummy text, glitters, brushes, and what I considered graphic design. I created my own site and put my graphics up for other Neopets users to use. Ever since then, I have never stopped being curious, learning, and experimenting. So here are some of the earlier works that I made when I was a little bean.
