I started out drawing and doodling in my spare time (and sometimes not so spare time!). My eventual discovery of Microsoft Paint along with Movie Maker on my parents computer lead to my first animation and my interest in computer graphics.
I soon made friends with Gimp (a graphics editing software) and started making wallpapers and photo manipulations. College introduced me to wonderful programs like Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects.
One of the great things about design and media is that there is always more to learn and discover.
