I hate writing these things. Here it goes…

I come from a small Military town, about an hour and half east of Toronto. Trenton is the town, and is the place I call home. I spent my days walking to and from school, eating from the one of the seven pizza places in the “downtown” core (it takes nearly 7 minutes to walk from one end to the other), and watching movies at the small, locally owned movie theatre. It was a good childhood, but as with most young teenage girls from small towns, I had dreams. DREAMS! To move to the big city and become the best graphic designer that ever lived!
I was a big dreamer… what kid isn’t? So after a year off of high school and saving those pennies, I moved to Etobicoke (wah-wah-waaaahhhh) to take the Graphic Design course at Humber College. I figured if I’m going to college, I’m going to try and have the most authentic experience there is, so I obviously chose to live in residence. One thing I completely forgot about when making that decision: I don’t particularly enjoy other people. I mean, I am quite peculiar when it comes to socializing. No one else will ever notice, it’s mostly internal feelings that don’t see the surface. Anyways, my course took a lot of time with homework and crazy projects (Circles, squares, triangles, anyone?) so I didn’t PARTY like my fellow residence-ees — which is totally fine with me, really.
In my last year of college, I managed to land an awesome internship with Interbrand Toronto (Thanks, Scott!), and graduated with Honours. Overall, it was a good experience. Lots of stress, crying over deadlines, and sucking it up to get it all done.

Now I’m doing some freelance, and looking for a job in a studio setting. I’m keeping busy with my many DIY projects, and playing with my two mutts, Zelda and Frank. I try to approach new projects and clients with enthusiasm and full frontal curiosity.
