with a passion for technology
When I was 14 in the summer of 2011 I began making logos and YouTube backgrounds for smaller sized YouTubers. From there I realized that this could be something that I could pursue as a career. I began watching YouTube tutorials on Photoshop and Illustrator as well as learning the basics of 3D Modeling in Cinema 4D.
Fast-forward 4 Years later to 2015 I enrolled in the Graphic Design Program and began mastering the principles of Graphic Design. By the time I started my classes, I had a very strong understanding of Photoshop and Illustrator. Which gave me a head start although, it didn’t prepare me for the other skills needed for Graphic Design. Such as understanding terms like “white space” “Kerning” “Typography” “Hierarchy” “Complementary” etc.
After two years of Graphic Design, I fell in love with Web Design and Front-End Web Development. I then decided that I wanted to learn more so I started using websites such as Codecademy, and Udacity.
Now that I learned some basic coding languages I decided that I wanted to learn more about WordPress. We were always told about WordPress in my college classes but we never went over it. So I took it into my own hands and began watching as many YouTube crash courses and tutorials.
Two years of learning how to use WordPress efficiently and finding out tips and tricks I’ve now built 5 websites that are being used by companies that are local to me and based in LA.
