I am a student in the Visual Arts MFA program at Jacksonville University. I am also a Graphic Designer in the Jacksonville University Athletic Department. I recently graduated with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology. I have always had a passion for design. When I played sports, I used to enjoy how all of the plays fit together. My passion for fitting elements together is why I enjoy graphic design.
