I'm a 20-year-old freelance graphic designer with an interest in photography. I was born in Phoenix, Arizona but grew up in Rochester, Minnesota. I'm currently living all over the world as I serve in the US Army.
I first started getting interested with design and photography around age 16. They both started out as just fun hobbies that occurred in between school and sports, but they quickly went from small hobbies to my dream careers. I also started a YouTube channel shorty after I found interest in design and photography. With the channel today, I still create a wide range of graphic design and music content. The channel has grown to over 80,000 subscribers and 10 Million video views. The channel has helped tremendously with getting me clients for freelance work.
Right after I graduated from high school I went to a community college here in Minnesota to study Communication Art & Design. It ended up not being the right thing for me. I had a strong dislike for the traditional art classes I was required to take and didn't learn much of anything I didn't already know or taught myself with design. So I decided not to finish college.
After a lot of thinking I joined the US Army as an UAV(Drones) Pilot in October 2018. It's something I've always thought about doing. I love it so far. So at the moment I'm trying to balance my time with my Military and freelance careers, but after I decide to leave the Army I plan on opening my own studio to work as a full-time freelance photographer and designer.
