Creative Work
From a young age I've known that I love to create. Design quickly became a creative outlet for me, and I am fascinated with design elements and making colorful, innovative webpages, like the one you're viewing now.

My natural inclination to create has contributed to my success in my undergraduate studies. The journalism curriculum at Auburn University provided another means to use my creativity, but this time with words: telling stories in a fashion that others enjoy reading. I look forward to using all the skills I have acquired over a lifetime of refinement, as well as continuing to refine them even further.
