I have followed my dream. I gained my knowledge in Design with a minor in Web Design from Portfolio Center in Atlanta, GA. The classes ranged from web design, coding, to advanced package design, branding and book design. At the same time I attended school I had the wonderful opportunity to intern at Neenah Paper for six months where I gained experience in designing deliverables that would increase the interest in fine papers and packaging solutions.


Prior to starting my career in Design, I was a senior auditor for PwC where I led audit teams and had constant interaction with clients. As time went by, I decided that the time had come to follow my passion, so I embarked on my adventure at Portfolio Center. After a very unconventional switch in careers, I am living the dream.
