I studied Art and Art History at a California Junior College before attending the San Francisco Academy of Arts for 2 years. However, I finished my art degree at the University of Missouri - KC. I have a B.A. in Studio Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design. I graduated during the first internet boom, so it seemed natural to follow a career in website design and visual communication. It's been a satisfying and successful choice!
