Born in Texas, raised in Charlotte. I saved my allowance money for months to purchase my first computer, a Compaq, at the age of nine. I spent a lot of time on MySpace——but not to socialize. Instead, I spent all of my time on musician's pages (mostly artists signed under Hollywood Record) to study the design and coding of their layouts. I also spent a lot of time on fan sites to study and practice the designing/coding of Wordpress layouts and getting some first-hand experience with SQL hosting.
I was able to apply and expand my years of design knowledge/practice at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Graphic Design, with additional study in business and marketing.
