I am a college graduate, holding an Associate's of Applied Science (focus: Interactive Design), an avid illustrator and hopeful writer. I can attest to a life of failure and achievement. One step forward frequenting two steps back. An optimistic pessimist. |
I aim to improve and one day be successful, and in the meantime enjoy the journey.
